The Environmental Benefits of Agriculture
Agriculture is the backbone of all historical civilizations and the contemporary way of life we know today. Early civilizations were able to vary their social structures and allocate resources to different endeavors because of the food they grew.
People are Motivated by Agriculture
Farmers, through many centuries, have fashioned and preserved the distinctive character of rural places. Orchards, vineyards, and wheat fields, to name just a few examples, are just a few of the lovely landscapes that may be created by farming. People in urban areas like agricultural landscapes for the same reason as the 45.7% of the global population that now lives in rural.
Habitats are a Product of Agriculture
Natural ecosystems are bolstered by ecological agricultural practices including organic, permaculture, and biodynamic agriculture. Waterfowl, amphibians, and pollinators, to name a few, rely on open meadows as an essential ecosystem.
Limited Food Supplies are made Possible through Agriculture
Small-scale urban agriculture has the potential to reduce the global environmental impact of our current food systems by centralizing production. Greenhouse gas emissions are lowered, the amount of transportation needed is minimized, and less energy is needed to produce food. While its merits are increasingly recognized, urban gardening is quickly gaining popularity.
