Enviro-Mich message from David Holtz <dholtz@cleanwater.org>

By Barbara Kingsolver
The Washington Post
"The analyses we have done show that no matter what, whether the system is highly technological or much more simple, about 50 to 60 percent of a population has to be involved in the work of feeding that population. Industrial agriculture did not 'save' anyone from that work, it only shifted people into other forms of food service."
