Russia’s Small Scale Organic Agriculture Model May Hold Key For Feeding The World
Is there a place in the world where you can own your own land?
No Government interference?
And is actually encouraged to support the independence and growth of local communities?
Is it America? Hell no. We’re talking about Russia comrade!
The 2003 The Bovine, Russia’s Private Garden Plot Act entitles every Russian to have their own land to farm.
Anywhere from 2.2 to 6.8 acres. Most of Russia’s food is organically grown in local backyards.
These kind of laws are the way forward for a lot of reasons; they can help community developement and independance, it’s also better for the environment and health and can encourage crop diversity (thus discouraging diseases). It’s unfortunate about Russia’s policies regarding religion, gender and sexuality.
