Sustainable Farming

It’s Farmer Friday! Today’s post is a short but sweet one.  I came across a pretty insightful TEDx Talk about sustainable farming and why it matters.  It is definitely worth checking out! I was never really one for economics, was not my favorite class in University by any means, but I got through it… The beginning of the talk gets into the economics but stick with it, the analogies are good and make a lot of sense.  Overall, a really good Tedx Talk about sustainable farming. Enjoy! Sustainable Farming Please support your local farmers and buy local whenever possible.                 Have a lovely weekend! With love from one tree hugger to another, xo
