We are Humans. We Grow Food. Growing food is a sign of civilized life. Development of agriculture closely follows the development of civilization. Agriculture is our first big step toward a civilized life. Therefore Daniel Webster says, “When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”
Eating is an agricultural act. No factory can ever produce a blade of grass. Farming is not just another job, it’s a way of life. And it’s been that way since the beginning of time. All the previous civilizations were connected to their food source.
Two centuries ago we took the wrong turn. The onset of industrial revolution fundamentally altered the way we lived, worked, and related to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation was unlike anything humankind had experienced before. Today the world is a big fat stinking mess, ready to go down any time.
All this ‘progress’ of last two centuries has dramatically changed our food choices and eating habits. We graze our way through the day, that too often on the run. And what we eat is actually killing us. Industrial food is a poison on the platter. And GMO is the icing on the cake.
It’s time to grow what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.
Live. Laugh. Farm. Here lies your and the planet’s destiny.
