“Someday we shall look back on this dark era of agriculture and shake our heads. How could we have ever believed that it was a good idea to grow our food with poisons?”
Jane Goodall, Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating

I worry about the fate of our environment under the Trump regime.  His choice to head the EPA is appalling, as his is disavowal of climate change.   Will the small steps we have achieved over the past 8 years be systematically dismantled?  We will continue to poison ourselves and future generations?

While the political decisions may be out of our hands, my hope is that the organic and small farm movement continues to swell; that individuals continue to delve into the reality of agribusiness and the atrocities of factory farming; that we continue to push for less toxins in our diets and more humane treatment for our animals; and that the interest in permaculture and small backyard gardening continues to grow.
