Recognize Subsistence Rights

Many traditional societies still practice gathering and hunting as a way to supplement their diets. It can be the case that government and corporate control of land can interfere with these practices. It also be the case that "food deserts" and corporate dominance of food production and distribution create food insecurity for many people-- rural and urban. It is the case that many public lands-- including parks, redevelopment zones, and acreage adjacent to right of ways-- could be utilized for community gardens, fruit and nut trees, and berries and other perennial edible plants. Public bodies should facilitate such plantings. All humans should have the right to gather such bounty and should have the right to garden space if there is none available to them.
