Words To Live By

February 9, 2009

Here’s a lovely poster, yours to download and print for free from ReadyMade Magazine, who asked five artists to re-imagine posters from the Great Depression era.

“Eat Local, Buy Local, Grow Local” is by Christoper Silas Neal, who explained that “solving the world’s energy and food problems would do a great deal to strengthen the global economy, prevent disease, and reverse the effects of climate change. The original Victory Garden program was designed to ease pressure on the public agricultural supply and support the war effort by encouraging families to grow their own food. I wanted to expand this idea to the broader concept of buying and eating local food.”

Be sure to check out all five posters available for download.
