Help create the Future of Farming
My friend Alex is helping create the future of farming.
In his own words:
"I’m trying to build a farm that will have a long-lasting impact on the lives of people in this region. We need more fresh, organic vegetables in this area. We need more sustainable agricultural practices. That’s not political either. It’s just a fact. Weather patterns are changing. During the grow season, we have extended periods of drought followed by intense storms. That’s not conducive to efficient farming. The future will have to be focused on developing indoor growing environments that are year round and efficient. I’m not even going to get into the effects of rising fuel prices on traditional farming, but our current model isn’t financially sustainable long-term."
Alex is a school teacher and writer of high fantasy. As such, he needs all the help he can get. Even a buck or two helps.
