Farming for justice is what I plan to do post-college. For me, farming is the solution to so many of the problems in the world. Farming is my way of acting in response to the exploitative industrial food complex. In response to global warming we can grow diverse vegetables and fruit together. In response to hunger we can cultivate healthy calories to nourish our bodies. In response to poverty we can sell or trade excess produce for other materials we need. In response to obesity we can strengthen our bodies physically by digging in the dirt. In response to boredom in our jobs, school, homes, relationships, we can get outside and participate in this revolutionary act of cultivating plants.
Who is the “we?”
We means all and any of us who want to join this movement to create another world where People and the Earth take care of each other. It is all inclusive assuming we all want to live on this land and have seven generations from now living on this land.
