Organic farming is a tool to connect with the nature

Organic farming has major benefits for climate change adaptation & mitigation, says Sujit Jain

World Environment Day

In the quest of conquering the nature, man has inadvertently divided the environment into natural environment that consists of all naturally occurring living and non-living things and a built environment, the one which has been carved by man in order to fulfil his wants. Man has been successful in transforming natural landscapes into urban settings and agricultural land has been tested time and again against ever increasing hunger index. This built environment, which was supposed to fulfil man’s needs as well as wants, however fails to do so. And then you find people, who want to go back to nature! You find people, who want to get back to subsistence economy, who want to ‘live life’ in wild- people who want to adopt ‘organic living’.
