Barbara Damrosch and I agree on many things and this is one of them, and I quote from her latest article as reproduced on KGI today:

"....I happen to think Prince Charles, long a champion of organic farming, is one of the world's most underestimated public figures"....

There are some excellent figures to be consumed in her article, (Before you eat up Read up), relating to amounts of pesticides in summer fruit (in the US) and other foods, which everyone should know about before they gorge themselves on all that lovely fruit currently available at the markets and greengrocers.

One of my favourite books happens to be Prince Charles', The Garden at Highgrove, and I applaud him on his environmental attitudes. He is often a speaker at organic events and has a breadth of knowledge that I wish some high profile Australians had.

I thought that was a good article too. I agree eat from your garden or check out your local suppliers. I have just eaten a salad of Doof Doof lettuce, finely sliced zucchini, spring onions, basil leaves and baby tomatoes from our garden, some Urrbrae High chilli olives and from far away some bottled anchovies in olive oil from Italy. Yummy!
