The environmental costs incurred through modern, chemical-intensive farming are no longer acceptable. Rampant pesticide use, soil depletion and genetic homogenization of crops threaten the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we and others depend on for food and habitat. Organic, sustainable agriculture is a realistic and necessary alternative to those practices. The following groups are leading the fight, either through example or through education, to replace the self-defeating cycle of destructive agriculture with the natural and nurturing techniques of sustainable farming.
Grants given to groups in this category totaled $107,500.
