Capri smiled. "Do they not do that, outside the city?"
"It's not unheard of. But it's not usual."
"Mmm. Well, I've heard that the economy is different outside. And also, you don't have the space limitations. You have room to grow all sorts of food. Here, if you don't grow something yourself, you have to trade for it or buy it - and things imported from outside the city are really expensive. So we try to minimize that. People who have room raise poultry and other animals... but as you can see, almost everyone grows their own veggies."
"So when I've eaten dinner over here... all the veggies were things you grew yourself?"
"Most of them. We trade for some. And all of the animals, of course. Can you imagine the Kirayth tending a chicken coop?"
Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.
We're now up to $2,572.60! Let's see if we can push it to $3,000!
Remember, every dollar facilitates one phone call to RAINN's hotline.
