Farming, Stewardship, and Fresh Foods

Over the past five years I have been thinking a lot about how farming is so much about stewardship, especially organic farming. The amount of time and care organic farmers invest in their land to offer us healthy foods resembles a stewardship relationship involving human beings tending to the earth, having reverence for it, and understanding that the earth offers us life.

After visiting and volunteering on organic farms, I have a deeper appreciation for fertile healthy land that give us organic fruits and vegetables and for organic farmers. Their decision not to use pesticides or other toxic agents tells us they not only care for their land, but just as importantly care for our health and well being.
