Sustainable Farming educates readers on the green way of sourcing your food.
As the topic of Sustainability has surged throughout the US, it has enrooted its way into the farming community, and now many farmers are working towards a more sustainable business plan to ensure their longevity in the field. In a time of technological advancement, it has never been easier to strip the land of all its resources and leaving it barren to move onto a new plot of land, especially in countries which lack environmental regulation. This practice is called clear-cutting and is used to feed the unsustainable desire of human beings for both lumber and arable land. This activity can lead to mass erosion and in many cases, landslides that claim human lives.
Sustainable Farming is no longer a rurally exclusive venture, as urban farms have been popping up in cities all across the U.S. It is clear, though, to move towards a society that values sustainable farming, we must come together. The UC Davis Agricultural Sustainability Institute states
“Reaching toward the goal of sustainable agriculture is the responsibility of all participants in the system, including farmers, laborers, policymakers, researchers, retailers, and consumers. Each group has its own part to play, its own unique contribution to make to strengthen the sustainable agriculture community”.
These farms come in many different shapes and sizes, and here on Sustainable Farming on the Renewable Now Network, we will be sharing stories of both urban and rural sustainable farms, in the U.S and across the world, and help our viewers find the best information about sustainable farming!
