Ready Steady Skip - The game show where needlessly wasted food is recovered from the bin and turned into delicious dishes before your very eyes! the roving house Aspect Juridique et Statut de l'Herboriste - Flore Sauvage et Médicinale Si l’on veut produire en circuit long, c’est-à-dire vendre ses plantes médicinales à des laboratoires pharmaceutiques, aucun problème : tout est en principe permis. Si l’on veut cultiver sans vendre, beaucoup de choses sont aussi permises. Mais ce n’est pas aussi simple si l’on veut produire et commercialiser par soi-même des plantes médicinales... Cet article a été publié dans un ancien numéro de la revue Passerelle Eco Vente Directe Le droit se corse sérieusement pour la vente directe. Toutefois, à cette liste s’ajoutent des plantes condimentaires, aromatiques, ou pouvant être utilisées en usage externe. Ensuite, le droit fixe aussi ce que l’on a le droit d’écrire ou non sur les étiquette (pas de conseils d’usage, pas de posologie si l’on n’est pas pharmacien ou herboriste !) Dans un autre article, nous reviendrons avec Serge sur ces aspects juridiques, avec détail et précision : le sujet est croquignol ! Etonnant statut d’herboriste !

Food Not Bombs - Wiki Food Not Bombs is a loose-knit group of independent collectives, serving free vegan and vegetarian food to others. Food Not Bombs' ideology is that myriad corporate and government priorities are skewed to allow hunger to persist in the midst of abundance. To demonstrate this (and to reduce costs), a large amount of the food served by the group is surplus food from grocery stores, bakeries and markets that would otherwise go to waste. This group exhibits a form of franchise activism. Principles[edit] The group serves free meals. Food Not Bombs is an all-volunteer global movement that shares free vegan meals as a protest to war and poverty. Always vegan or vegetarian and free to everyone.Each chapter is independent and autonomous and makes decisions using the consensus process.Food Not Bombs is dedicated to nonviolence. Food Not Bombs works to call attention to poverty and homelessness in society by sharing food in public places and facilitating community gatherings of hungry people.

Notes on Skipping I've gotten some questions about skipping (the British term for dumpster diving) so I thought I'd put some thoughts out there. Lots of people skip, many of them skip way more than I do. In London I really only skipped food and some materials to set up my room initially. My friends skipped furniture, wood for bonfires, household things for new squats, and food, of course. Some people cringe when you say that you skip food. Ok, so that's produce. For food, I have my preferences for skipping. Our culture of perfection has created a shitload of waste (and weird genetic modifications of food). If skipping seems too weird, maybe you can ask your local (as in small business) grocery store about their waste. A few weeks ago I was going through the green bins at a local shop when the manager, who I've known in the neighborhood for at least 5 years, came out. Finally, don't let anyone make you feel like a criminal for skipping. And in all the other crazy shit that feeds us:
