Are your rights to grow and share food being threatened?


I’m worried about my fellow New Zealander’s rights to grow and share food after reading this.  Not sure about Quebec and Canada -w ill look into it more. Quick quote from article : “the bill will turn growing and sharing food into a government-granted privilege rather than a human right. It will also make it illegal to distribute any type of food based on the bill’s language. This includes seeds, nutrients, natural medicines, minerals, and even water — without expressed government permission….What all this means, of course, is that the NZ government may soon be able to arbitrarily decide at any time to restrict individual freedom to plant vegetable gardens and share the produce with their neighbors, for instance. Even “cottage industries,” which include at-home food artisans, could be restricted under the new law
