Sustainability and Agriculture
I envision a future where our American farmers can meet the demands of their whole state. Not only is this good for local economies, but it creates a relationship with our food.
Preserve valuable land from development in urban and rural areas.
Technology and automation in farming have created output that people once thought impossible 50 years ago.
The economic scorecard is currently centered around what gives the most output and profit at any cost to us and our environment.
Instead, let us start asking; what varieties are the most nutritious?
Are my farming practices depleting the soil and causing harmful waste in our water systems and air?
Let’s bring farmers big and small, scientists, ecologists, food processors, and economists to come up with creative solutions that benefit our health, economy, and ecosystem.
