Themes of the Farm Visits project:

  1. How did the farmer(s) come to farming and its way of life?
  2. What is the land like, the farm like, and how did it develop?
  3. Permaculture - What is it?  Is it widely practiced?
  4. Soil Building - Many would say this is the foundation of organic agriculture
    and the main feature that distinguishes it from conventional
  5. Practices: Pest Management and Irrigation
  6. Science and Study
