Quote from the Rodale Institute ” Feeding the world

“Agriculture shouldn’t just feed the world’s growing population today, or tomorrow, but far into the foreseeable future,” says Jeff Moyer, farm manager at the Rodale Institute. By building and improving soil health, using cover crops and manure, encouraging biodiversity, and greatly minimizing synthetic inputs, Moyer says organic farmers are ensuring fertile soil in which to grow food 100 years out or more.

Instead of asking “how do we feed the world”, we should be asking “how can we help the world feed itself.”  Even in the face of a rising global population, organic techniques provide a more secure, more stable and more sustainable food system whether in African villages, Iowan cornfields or suburban backyards.”
