Last Friday, on the first day of the Farmers' Market on The terrace, I met with Thomas Cierpka the deputy director of the International Federation Of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) and we chatted about the importance of going organic not just from a health perspective only but from the basis that this is the only way to sustainable farming and quite simply to continue... I know I have been telling you loads about this stuff, but I wouldn't be posting so much about this had it been not relevant or significant. Sustainability, organic farming and supporting local produce, eating seasonal and slowing down a little is very essential nowadays more than ever...
Why? And what can individuals do to help? are all questions that are answered in the video above. Watch as I chat with Thomas Cierpka about the importance of organic farming, and farmers' markets... then move on to talk about our responsibility towards the future. Learning about the organisation (IFOAM) and what individuals can do to support #Organic & #Sustainability...
All the more reason to wake up every Friday morning and head to the Emirates Towers, where The Farmers' Market On The Terrace takes place. Where you can meet the farmers, talk to them and support them. Where you can make the choice to buy local produce, support local farmers and the people who are working so hard to raise awareness about organic farming, sustainable eating and slow food among other sustainable interests.... I'd say these are all causes worth waking up early for... and would encourage you to be very mindful in your choices... why not? You can only be doing good that way.
While there are many food markets out there, a lot of fun, lots of food festivals and many many food activities (we do lose count), but this farmers' market is one that should be on the priority list, because there you actually support the farmers themselves, local produce and the local farming industry.
Enjoy & see you there tomorrow I guess :)
