Farmers have lived this existence since the beginning of agriculture, and now amidst a unique scenario, a crisis has developed due to the unprepared nature of our current human society. We prepare for war, we prepare for retirement, we prepare to purchase a home, but when do we prepare to work in harmony with Nature? When do we prepare to be self resilient? When do we prepare to work as a community? Luckily, we now have that very opportunity.
We have the opportunity to take time to pause and reflect. We have the opportunity to support local businesses. We have the opportunity to engage in community. We can do this in many ways, let's start with respecting our fellow humans through reducing the spread of this virus. And let us finish by respecting Nature and learning how to live in deeper Harmony with All.
