An approach to agriculture that realizes, integrates, stewards, and protects the value, potential, vulnerability, and future of people, animals, plants, soil, water, biology, resource, and environment through common sense, social awareness, moral responsibility, and selfless contribution in an ever-changing world.
Behind The Definition
Defining any term in today’s world is difficult to achieve. Why? Because true and accurate definition requires the one defining to build his or her definition upon timeless truth, social integrity, and long-established word-by-word definitions attached to those words they choose in defining. Likewise, proper definition requires that one put all personal agenda aside, subject his or her definition to sound scrutiny, and that their arrived-at definition be in the best interest (what is most healthy, not easiest) of all. Today, our world is buried in buzz phrases, one-line agendas, deviant bias, and a level of non-realism that destroys the core integrity of most “sound” definitions as personal perspective and exploitive profits reign. Yet, the concept behind a term like “Sustainable Agriculture” implies what is best for people, animals, plants, resources, and the environment…long term.
