Farmng Sustainability and Taste
Farmng Sustainability and Taste
• I love sustainability
• I want to talk about how sustainable farming goes back to historical farming methods. This includes many "organic" practices, but I don't want to get too bogged down in the politics of what organic farming is.
•I have learned quite a bit about the specific science that explains why and how sustainable farming works.
• I care about the planet and changing the way we grow and produce food can change the course that humans have taken. We can undo severe damage and create a culture with a new appreciation for where our food comes from and the large impact it has.
• Sustainability is the primary outcome of organic farming and is one of the major issues we face today. If we cannot continue the systems that are currently in place, we have to change to something more efficient.
• Sustainability is the key to sustaining life on earth.
• People need to recognize that sustainability supports their own life and makes everything they do possible.
• Even if you don't care about the ethical treatment of animals, this subject can matter to everyone because it is a system that cannot be supported and is going to eventually collapse and devastate the population.
• What I want to focus on is how not only is ethical sustainable farming good for the environment, but actually results in a better tasting product. This perspective is important regarding reaching as many people as possible, because everyone likes food that tastes really good. Well most people anyways. I feel that this perspective can reach to the people who don't care as much about the environmental benefits.
• My perspective is reflective of one of my main resources, Dan Barber. Like Dan, I believe that food and livestock grown organically is more sustainable and tastes better
I love food
• First and foremost, the taste of naturally grown food over largely produced and chemically treated food is the core of my argument and the key to getting people to care. Many people have taken the side of the environmentalist and some people do not care. If I can evoke an emotional attachment to food in my readers I think I can reach to their logical side with the scientific support.
• Taste matters to everyone. It's pretty simple, nobody eats anything that doesn't taste good unless they are literally starving. Taste has a powerful ethos over people and can strengthen memories and provide comfort.
• I also learned the negative effects of chemical farming and mono-culture farming. --- I would also like to include how excess nitrogen runoff contributes to oceanic dead zones and thus show that farming methods is about more than what we eat.
• I detest and resent factory farming and would love to live to see the day when there are no factory farms.
• The flaws of the system that we currently depend on forces the change we need. To point out the flaws of the current system shows the need and urgency to get people to care about change.
• The flaws of factory farming are the flaws in the current system we depend on.
• One of the major counter arguments to organic farming over chemical farming is the ability to feed the world. However, we currently can feed the world. The problem is not tonnage, its distribution.
• Accessibility to food effects communities all over the world, rural and urban. Many people live in urban food deserts,
• The accessibility to food is the key to ending world hunger, not pure caloric output.
• Accessibility to food also effects everyone. As we deplete the world of more and more resources, accessibility to food will become more and more scarce.
• Factory farming has also been detrimental to the economies of rural low income communities, which continues to contribute to world hunger.
• I love rural life and culture, and I would rather live out in the country on my own land with my own garden.
• many people in rural communities have had their local farms destroyed by industrial farming.
Misc. Food Culture
• I think that most people have a huge detachment from their food and my work can help regain that passion for food in people.
• Everyone should care about food production. Without it, we would starve. Food is at the center of many cultures and is not only consumed but celebrated all over the world.
• I think so many people do not think of where their food comes from or how it's production effects them it is easy to remain detached. I hope that my project inspires people to be more involved with their food and where it comes from. My grandest goals would be to inspire political action and actual change in the way that food is grown and produced globally.
• Also pollution and resource depletion associated with factory farming of livestock, for example 1/3 of fresh drinking water goes to watering livestock.
• When all the resources on earth are gone, that's it.
• Organic farming can produce similar crop yields with less environmental devastation.
• I think my project can teach people the reality that organic and sustainable farming can be the future of food.
• I also want to be able to support the economic sustainability of these farming methods and show the multiple benefits it poses to people around the world.
