This kind of agriculture is good even for human health. It does not only focus on economy, but it respects and takes into account the environment. As a small scale farmer, you have the possibility to produce plants, animals and food in a natural way. This can be named as biodynamic or biologic way and it includes both agriculture and farming.
As human beings, farmers and consumers, the Km0 agriculture is the way to go if we want to preserve our planet. This is also called agroecology because everything is related to land, to nature, to people, in order to build a sustainable livelihood.
Things must change. Most of the funds for agriculture, in the last years, have been given to large agribusiness companies, but Governments should start supporting small farmers. Due to the increasing movements of people from rural areas to cities, no one, in the future, will maintain the knowledge and the possibilities to invert this situation in the countryside.
As Baden Powell said “ Leave this world a little better than you found it ”, as small farmer we have the possibility to rebuild the agro industry. It will not be easy, but thanks to our efforts and our passion, we can do it.
