Exploration 9 StewartD
The most important theme of this film is getting Americans back to our roots in the farming industry which means farming healthier and staying more focus on raising crops and livestock the right way instead of farming for production. “Respecting the design of nature” which means imitating nature the best we can, this means we replace the use of fertilizers by creating a living environment that emulates nature which also helps with eliminating disease. This film shows us that we should defiantly need to do this because the evidence is there. We seen that the living conditions of the animals were not great and we seen the diseases that came from that and in turn trying to treat the diseases the farmers have to inject the livestock and the crops to fight the diseases which in turn we eat the animals and ingest the pesticides. “The honey is so cheap we can’t compete” I doubt that because if they were to go organic they would save money just like the other farmer did and they could lower their prices and beat the competition. At first they would take a loss but eventually it would pay off in the long run. I always wanted to do this but I was still really motivated by this film and one day I hope to grow and raise my own food and I think that if we all learned these skills and start growing our own food we could give ourselves a better choose of food and maybe we could do something like a fast food place but for organic and healthy food because we know we all need it.
