Family farms, a simple solution to complex environmental issues

SolveClimate's Max Ajl quotes, and then expands on, an assertion in the Food First! [PDF] report that family farms are good for the environment:

Sustainable, smallholder agriculture represents the best option for resolving the fourfold food, finance, fuel and climate crises.

Max's logic is straightforward and compelling. "Could resolving such huge, inter-laced problems be really so easy, so straightforward? ... It could," he concludes. We at Mellow Monk couldn't agree more.

Two of our tea grower-artisans. (Yes, they are sisters.)
