If we don’t save our farmland now, in the not distant future, there will not be enough land and farmers to provide our human population with food. Which, perhaps, won’t be a problem. Our species might have already committed unintentional suicide by doing nothing about this climate change situation. But because we can do and must do, I do. I donate to organizations that are looking to the past to provide for the future. Thus, permaculture and agroforestry. Thus, American Farmland Trust. Because if we change how we farm, we can save the world, too.
Ever heard of or seen the bumper stickers NO FARMS NO FOOD? That’s American Farmland Trust. Their mission “is to save the land that sustains us by protecting farmland, promoting sound farming practices, and keeping farmers on the land.”
