"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Money doesn’t grow on trees and trees don’t grow on money
The Contrary Farmer - 5/23/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – I was so gratified to see Wendell Berry’s remarks in a recent interview where he makes a point about economics that is overlooked in these days when divisiveness rules the political roost.
