Organic and Sustainable Farming

We have the ability to make more nutritious food, with more nutrient-dense soil. The steps we take to protect our soil, with minimizing chemical fertilizer use, protecting against erosion, and growing a variety of foods, will help bring essential vitamins and minerals back in the soil.  Those vitamins and minerals in the soil are absorbed by food growing from the soil, adding needed nutrition to the foods we eat.  Eating from local providers helps keep the cost of transportation and chance of spoilage down.  And teaching the next generation, our children, can help correct the environmental mistakes that we are living with today.  What will you do to improve our soil and future generation's food?
