Vandana Shiva: Organic farmers are the best scientists of today, because they actually have to understand how nature works in order to produce. They are the best health specialists of today, because they are giving us the food that gives us health. An organic farmer is the best steward of the land and the best ecologist. And I am increasingly feeling that they are the best peacemakers of today because there is more violence, more death, more destruction, and more wars through a violent industrial agriculture system. And to shift away from that into an agriculture of peace is what organic farming is doing.
