Organic Food, Diverse Food, Abundant Food: Dr. Vandana Shiva from Kevin Hansen on Vimeo.

As Shiva explains, “The only way to reliably feed ourselves is to ensure that we first feed other species. We have to see farming as feeding the earthworm. We have to see farming as feeding the bees. And humans will get good food and abundant food as a side effect. But the moment we try and use violent instruments that kill [the species] that make food possible, we will never be able to solve this issue.”
