Thought on World Food Day: Let's protect and promote small farmers!
95% of the World's farms are small-scale. 2-billion people depend on small farms for their livelihoods. 1-billion people in rural areas live on less than $1.25/day. Most are small farmers. Small-scale farmers produce 70% of the World's food on 25% of the World's farmland. (USC, Canada)
Let's protect and promote small farmers!
Happy World Food Day!
