About the Book
Until now, the importance and the position of farmers and women farmers in our society has very rarely been addressed, if ever acknowledged. Moreover, great confusion has arisen about what the essential role of agriculture in society should be.
The authors of this booklet show the need of self-confidence, self-respect and a sense of honour as the primary condition to grant farmers and women farmers the courage to strive for self-sufficiency. Prosperity in society is created when farmer families gain autonomy of thought in matters of soil fertility, seed, water and energy.
A society can last only on the base of a harmonious relationship with the natural wealth. There is no culture without agriculture.
