Small, local farms are not just better for the planet, they are one big part of the solution to climate change: “The current body of soil science shows that all the cropland on Earth, if farmed organically, could sequester 41 percent of all the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.” (Rodale’s Organic Life).

Here’s a wonderful short film about small, organic farms, and young farmers in the Pacific Northwest.

Also, put Artwalk in April 2016 on your calendar: Joel Sackett will be presenting a collection of his photographs at BPA Gallery, “Local Farmers on Climate Change”, featuring local farmers from around Bainbridge and Kitsap County.
