S is for Sustainable Farming
What is Sustainable Farming?
"Sustainable agriculture integrates three main goals -- environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity.... Sustainability rests on the principle that we must meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.... Therefore, stewardship of both natural and human resources is of prime importance. Finally, it is important to point out that reaching toward the goal of sustainable agriculture is the responsibility of all participants in the system, including farmers, laborers, policymakers, researchers, retailers, and consumers. Each group has its own part to play, its own unique contribution to make to strengthen the sustainable agriculture community."
