Modern Agriculture

My family is five of the 6.8 billion living here on planet Earth. It’s hard for me to fathom that in 2050, when I am 76 years old; they predict the population to be 9 billion!  Thinking forward, where will they live and how will we feed them all? Currently, we are generations removed from farming. Most of the 6.8 billion do not know or understand how their food is produced. We are inundated with inaccurate information about farming and food production. This has created public confusion and distrust.

I know gardening is a great tool for educating and turning around the myths strangling the world of agriculture.  I found a video that puts my concerns out there for you to think about.  Check it out and tell me what you think.
