We definitley need to do a better job at "getting the message out". All of the
above are great ideas. I would add: "field days" that are geared to farmers,
researchers and the general public that focus on proven sustainable ag concepts
and practises. This is what attracted me to sus. ag practises- seeing farmers and
researchers who were doing it, and that it was more then just theory. That is why
I hold a major field day every year and host tour groups and individuals from all
over the planet. It gives them an opportunity to see for themselves how these sus.
ag practises are done. All this talk about Avery, Ventura, Limbaugh and others,
gets us nowhere. Rather, we need to go far beyond ideas, theories, and debates.
Cultivating relationships and gaining respect with other farmers, researchers, the
public, and those who hold influencial power in the ag realms will go a long way
to promoting sustainable ag into the next millennium.
