"How we eat determines to a considerable extent how the world is used."
"Sustainability is a question rather than an answer," as the late Robert
Rodale was fond of saying. Sustainability is a direction rather than a
destination, like a star that guides the ships at sea but remains forever
beyond the horizon. The "question of sustainability" can be asked of any
ongoing activity or process. It can be asked of "conventional" agriculture
and of any proposed "alternative" agriculture: Is it sustainable? Is it
moving toward the goal of sustainability?
"If there is to be a bright future for
our children and grandchildren, it will come from
consumer support of producers who work in concert
with nature -- organically, sustainably, and humanely."
