The Messenger - Issue #4: Natural Farming
By Socratus • Issue #19 • View online
Once upon a time, food in India was grown without artificial fertilizers or chemical pesticides. Depending on whom you ask, that was the worst thing ever (typical challenge: how can you grow food for a 1.5 billion people without using chemicals?) or it’s the way of the future: good for farmers, good for consumers and good for climate.
You can guess which side of that debate appeals to us, but instead of us telling you what we feel, we are going to let Prakriti tell the story of natural farming.

Sharing is Caring
We hope you have been liking the messenger. If you do, share it!

Afterword
We hope Indian farmers won’t have to move from the countryside into cities, but it looks like that’s going to happen. Better housing is going to be key:
