More from the Food Ways: Sisaket Shallots and Ubon Chilis

In Research on 10/05/2010 at 4:43 pm

The first week of May found the Food Ways Learning Group traveling by 6-wheel truck trace the food ways of two very commonly purchased food ingredients – shallots and chilis.  Buying food is increasingly common in Esan’s rural communities and villagers are increasingly concerned and are asking – where does food come from?  How is it produced?  While both research trips were important learning experiences for our group, everyone was astounded by the amount of chemicals used in production.  Yet this is reality in a food system that depends on monocropping.  More writing to come on this resarch process, for now some photos from our most recent experiences.
