I personally thought that Steve's circle interpretation of the relationship
between organics and sustainability was excellent! In this day and age, I'm
guessing that a fully self-sustaining farm (or one that fits entirely within
the sustainable circle, in other words) would be hard to find, but that
shouldn't keep that from being our goal! Some farms only use a few
sustainable practices, but aren't we better off to applaud their efforts
rather than to simply point out their short-comings? There are some organic
farms that come very close to fitting completely within the sustainable
circle, but there are others that rely heavily on off-farm inputs for one
reason or another that don't. That's simply a fact of life. I would guess
that in different areas of the country, sustainable practices such as
Steve's may have more of a positive impact on the soil than some of the
strictest organic practices.
Just my 2 cents,
