Oil Solution: Sustainable Farming

Dependence on oil is counter productive. Sustainable farming is a no-brainer. Fresher food. Better taste. Lower impact on the environment. Less petroleum dependence... add up the benefits vs. costs.

Oil... and farming? How are the connected?

Conventional farming relies heavily on oil-based products. From petroleum based pesticides and fertilizers to plastic for covering the soil, to all the transportation required to market globally.

Sustainable farming, however has a different business model.

Focused on natural soil and plant biodiversity to fertilize, manage insects, and cover the soil with mulch to prevent moisture and soil loss -- sustainable farming also markets locally to reduce transportation timelags (which reduce freshness) and oil dependence.

The Farmers Markets, Farm To School, Community-based agriculture, and local markets and restaurants support this sustainable approach to more localized farming. You can choose to support sustainable farming... and reduce our dependence on oil all with the decisions you make about which food and where you choose to buy your food.

You tastebuds will thank you!
