Sustainable Farming

Omnia Humanitas intends to build sites that demonstrate sustainable farming practices and reintegrate farming into the everyday experience of people.

There have been many reports about the deleterious effects of pesticide use and agribusiness farming practices on food quality and the environment.  The loss of small farms is lamented, not only because farming is no longer integrated into the everyday experience of people, but the land is often converted into housing or to industrial use contributing to suburban sprawl and a diminishment of the quality of life. (D. Hayden, Building Suburbia. 2003)

Integrated, organic practices are self-sustaining, environmentally sound, and have a comparable or higher rate of productivity than current intensive, chemical-based methods. (C.Vasilikiotis, Ph.D, Can Organic Farming Feed the World?, Nov. 2000.)

 

Omnia Humanitas intends to return small parcels of neglected or once farmed land to agricultural use and encourage those who live nearby to reacquaint themselves with the land, learn as much as they can, and participate in whatever manner suits their circumstances or interests.  Internships will be arranged for college students studying agriculture, and school children,  local gardening enthusiasts and native plant societies will be invited to participate as well.
