|Subject:||consolodation of agri-business|
I am active in many environmental organizations in my community, and one of my biggest concerns is the increase in corporate control and consolodation of the agri-business sector. Small farmers are being squeezed out of business, turning farms into sub-divisions and isolating rural communities from food sources and food choices. Quality of food is sacrificed for quantity ( spelled PROFIT), and land is being ruined rather than being nurtured, and for the same reason. Many of our economic problems could be largely corrected by reversing this trend. You can do that! Please do!
