Where does the food come from, Mummy?

As they see it, agriculture is not an industry on the periphery of modern civilization. It is a fundamental act that determines whether we as a society will live or die. What binds these [farmers] is not a particular farming method, but rather the conviction that as humans, the contributions they make are essential.... In quiet ways, in quiet places, they have set about correcting the damage that has come from believing agriculture could actually be reduced to numbers alone. The first step: reclaim their place in the center of the equation.

A quote from Lisa M. Hamilton's book: Deeply Rooted

This quote came to me via the daily ezine, Culture is not optional
