I hope people will make the time to watch Green Gold. The farming techniques illustrated are the total opposite of an agricultural system centered on killing & death through the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers. Permaculture, forest farming, restorative agriculture--- whatever one wants to call the general idea - is predicated on growth & life (beginning with friable SOIL that is alive, unlike the hard-packed soil you get with the absence of insects, worms, and micro-organisms).
And thank you for making the point you did. I have friends who don't worry about non-organic foods with skins they peel off anyway - when all these killing-chemicals, these organ-disruptor-chemicals, leach into the soil and must be drawn up into the plants themselves.
We need to stop the madness!
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
