Take a moment to consider that 50% of Americans were farming in 1880. Now less than 2% of the nation is employed in agriculture. From another perspective, in 1945 Americans grew 45% of their food in their backyard gardens. Now we grow 0.1% of our food in our backyards.
We created this era of chemical mega farms that has led to the destruction of our soils, water systems, oceans, and human health. By the same reality, we can transform this planet to the most verdant and regenerative ecosystem that has been in many millennia.
By learning to work in a co-creative process with mother nature and her extraordinary variety of species, farmers and consumers will participate to witness richer soils and more abundance of life and health than has been seen in human history. Lets rise together. www.farmersfootprint.us
