Program #IKEJ001. Recorded in College City, PA on February 08, 2002.
There is no sanctuary from corporate conglomeration, not even our food supply. A handful of corporations now own the majority of farms. Predictably, the profits are shuttled away from where they are created, and responsibility to the land and its people is absent. The benefits heralded by the corporations fall short of their claims. Pesticide and fertilizer use is up with little or no increased productivity. Topsoil is washing out to sea at alarming rates. Our monoculture food crops are becoming increasingly at risk of catastrophic loss. Sustainable agriculture is the antithesis of this corporate agribusiness and is ultimately about sustaining people, not profits.
