At the end of the day, this topic affects us all. We need to find a way to feed everyone without continuing the damage we are inflicting on our environment. But what is more important? Feeding everyone, or decreasing the effects modern agriculture is having on our fragile ecosystems. It doesn’t seem like there is a solution to both just yet. In the future I envision, perennial polycultures will feed the majority of our world’s population on a mostly plant-based diet. One of the pre-watchings this week estimated that switching to a vegan diet requires 18 times less land. Maybe it is optimistic to assume that if more people switched to eating plant-based meals on a more regular basis, we would have enough land to successfully operate perennial polycultures like the biggest little farm, but I think we would see a huge impact from this. A huge mindset shift for many people would be necessary. The kind of intervention we would need to see here is the massive education of society on the environmental impacts of their diet. Governments need to push to include this kind of education in our school curriculums so everyone can make more informed decisions!
