sections the first deals with principles to nurture the earth an idea mainline farming has never really endorsed The second section describes food and fiber production including the notion that most farmers don t care about nutrient density or taste because all they want is shipability and volume The third section titled Respect for Life presents an apologetic for food sacredness and farming as a healing ministry Only lunatics would want less machinery and pathogenicity Oh the ecstasy of not using drugs or paying bankers How sad The final section deals with promoting community including the notion that more farmers would be a good thing br br
