AUSTIN, Texas, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As food prices continue to increase sharply, economists warn of food shortages that could be worse than the shortages which prompted food riots in 2008. The combination of soaring commodities prices, increasing oil prices, insufficient crop yields, and an already weak economy are the ingredients for a perfect storm leading to a dangerous international food shortage.
Certified permaculture designer and backyard food production expert Marjory Wildcraft sees the economic dominoes continuing to fall and basic staples of food becoming a bigger priority for the average American. She can reveal news about the latest food shortages reported by America's largest foodservice provider, Sysco, and give advice on what to do to prepare for what's heading our way.
Wildcraft can tell your audience how they can grow food in these unstable times when she answers:
- Why should the average person be concerned about the food supply?
- How much time does it take to grow your own food?
- How can someone who doesn't have a green thumb grow food successfully?
- What advice do you have for someone with a small yard or someone living in an apartment?
- Should people consider buying land in rural areas for planting?
