Organic Manifesto

Maria Rodale's book Organic Manifesto: How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and keep us safe, have a clear plan for change. In short, explains the dangers of chemical farming, misconceptions of organic farming, and urges the government to their irresponsibility toward health and welfare in favor of corporate influence.

"Farmers are caught on a treadmill" he wrote in his defense of the compassion of the willingness of many farmers to turn to organic farming. They and their lands have become dependent on chemicals, genetically modified seeds and generous tax incentives offered to chemical agriculture and offers two scenarios -. one of a farmer trapped in a culture system is still chemically dependent and a biological model of agriculture painting these two radically different pictures. she called to task all those who say it can not be profitable. It also opposes the story told by the big business that the world would starve without chemical agriculture.

Rodale cited rising health care costs, especially for our children, created by the poisoning of our land, air and water. Organic Manifesto focus on their claims, but are buried fears, rumors and conflicting reports created to keep the public to hear the evidence. Companies, and therefore political campaigns, have much to lose if the public is always good with the actual costs of chemical farming.

While Rodale paints a picture of the tragedy in Organic Manifesto book, but also offers great hope. Its color ideas and enthusiasm throughout the book, leaving you hoping that there may be changes. I found some things to change in my small organic garden - Learn how direct seeding can be beneficial and re-engage with the increased use of cover crops to enrich my land and help beneficial insects.

Rodale writing style is conversational. She brings deep, dark, concepts, concern to light making complex systems seem simple and understanding. Give in Organic Manifesto book the history of chemical agriculture on a clear and concise calendar not to ruin the book. If you have trouble explaining their commitment to organic skeptics, this book will give you plenty of talking points.

The Organic Manifesto book is a quick read (187 pages printed double-spaced). There is a lot of fluff. My copy is underlined and marked on almost every page. This is a book that I will return to the inspiration, research and writing to help my own organic garden.

I wish in Organic Manifesto book was required reading for every person holding political office, especially anyone involved in health, agriculture and science policy writing. As Mary said, we need our government to be "world leaders (and not babies or bullies!)" When it comes to saving the planet, and therefore, our health and our future.

I also wish there was a way to get in Organic Manifesto book into the hands of farmers, so I can consider new ways. I know many gardeners and farmers who say they support the organic form, and try to do things organically. Rodale, said: "Like any addict knows, there is no halfway. Either you are addicted to thank you for your medicine, or if you are free and clear." It's not easy to break any addiction, you have to work hard and sacrifice., not cheap or easy. But you can do. System Our country agriculture is addicted to chemical agriculture.

After reading Organic Manifesto book, I think it's time for an intervention. And the only way that will never happen, is that if we educate ourselves and take action. Buy organic. Grow organic. Demand organic.
