What's good for society?
Can't we do both? Prioritizing organic farming at the local level doesn't necessarily have to compete with investments in large scale farming. Some initiatives are double wins: Investment in watershed management and reducing water waste among large-scale farmers(which i turn allows small farmers to also access water)/// Encouraging reuse of waste/composting - especially when leading to hyper-local farming in cities and suburbs to reduce pressure on farms to provide all food to cities, increasing nutrition and local varieties - this can happen in the developed and developing world/// Also finding ways of connecting rural farmers to markets, providing opportunities in rural areas, because having unused farmland won't necessarily be taken over by big, super-efficient farming. It could get taken over by desert or lie fallow/// Need to stop talking about big vs. little - how do we first invest in win-win situations that everyone can agree will be beneficial?? BOTH! by Mar 17
