Farming Beautiful

Cara Cummings's picture

Farming is inherently beautiful. 

The reorganization of soil, water, and sunlight into a rainbow of colors and all of the architectural combinations that we have not thought of yet, that end up reorganized yet again before they end up on our plates. And then there are the things that we farm, but don’t necessarily (and sometimes, necessarily) eat. The wood, fuels, fibers, and of course the flowers.

The Flowers.

There are so many reasons to grow flowers in your garden, or on your farm--maybe even more reasons to grow them on your farm. Flowers are just one of the stages of farming the food we eat. And those flowers are dependent, often, on the insects that pollinate them. So it would make sense that having more flowers available for the beneficial insects is a great idea--they are part of your farm’s health.
