Quote Sunday

[Image from Shelby Farms Park proposal, by Tom Leader Studio]
"Farming, done properly, is a very efficient engine of cultivation that requires a careful understanding of the site and clear intentions. People don't farm in an ambiguous way and that's what I like about it as a reference  If we're going to intervene in the landscape, it should be for a clear reason." - Tom Leader

  1. This quote rings so true, and it helps show how smart farmers actually are. Most people tend to think farmers are dumb because they're "country folk" but farming really isn't as easy as it looks - both in terms of physical labor and the mental labor and planning involved. Farmers are actually very intelligent, and they make the food you need to live, so you should show them some respect! :)

  2. I feel like there are a lot of people in the world who need to read this quote and heed it's words. They probably need to read a few happy being single quotes and sayings and stop taking out their pent up frustrations on the land and the environment... but I'm just speculating.
