“One of the most revolutionary things we can do is take back control of our food,” says Ric Buckman Coe, whose urban garden themed song ‘Love For All Living Things’ is available on his new EP.
Here is an excerpt from the song:
“So we started with a plot in a neighbour’s yard
With a couple of friends and a bottle of wine,
You know it wasn’t to hard
You don’t know how good it feels,
To eat your own tomatoes and string beans”
The video for the song was filmed in urban gardens around Vancouver, BC.
From the sleeve of the new EP ‘Crow’s Nest’ (available online here):
“I came across an article about the Permaculture Punks of Mexico City a number of years ago and their ecological and social movement really prepared the ground for this song. One of the most revolutionary things we can do is take back control of our food. In coming years this will become even more necessary as we deal with rising oil prices & transportation costs, GMO’s and the threat to bio-diversity, global warming and regional and international food insecurity. Our communities and our health will be strengthened the more we can eat from our bio-regions, the more we break away from the corporate food industry, and the more we follow a plant-based diet. In this way, the simple act of growing our own food becomes an expression of personal and community power, and an act of Love and Harmony with the Earth.”
