Organic  farming  is  a  form  of  agriculture  that  relies  on  techniques  such  as  crop  rotation,  green  manure,   compost,  and  biological  pest  control.  Cunningham  Organic  Farming  uses  no  pesticides  and  they use compost for fertilizers, "We use chicken manure called EZ Green Natural  Organic  Fertilizer"  (Cunningham).  Organic  farming  practices  is  helpful  to  our  environment  and  what  foods  people  consume,  "We  practice  organic   farming  because  we  do  not  believe  in  using  herbicides  and  pesticides"  (Cunningham).  The  advantages  of  organic  farming  our  farmers  can  reduce  their  production  costs  because  they  do  not  need  to  buy  expensive  chemicals  and  fertilizers,  organic  farming  saves  energy  and  protects  the  environment,  can  slow  down  global  warming,  fewer  residues  in  food,  more  animals  and plants can live in the same  place in a natural  way  also  known  as  biodiversity,  and  pollution  of  groundwater  is  stopped.  The  disadvantages  of  organic  farming  is  organic  food  is  more  expensive  because  farmers  do  not  get  as  much  out  of  their  land  as  conventional  farmers  do,  production  costs  are  higher  because  farmers  need  more  workers,  marketing  and   distribution  is  not  efficient  because  organic  food  is  produced  in smaller  amounts,  food  illnesses  may  happen   more  often,  and  organic  farming  cannot  produce  enough  food  that  the  worlds  population  needs  to  survive  it  could  lead  to  starvation.Organic  farming  could  be  encouraged  because  it  could  lead  to  a  more  sustainable  environment  which  in  turn  makes  the  human  race  live  longer.  "I  strongly  propose  that  the  usage  of  fertilizers  for 

subsistence  agriculture  be  completely  stopped  by  encouraging  organic farming" (Yunui). What I  learned  about  the  farmers  market  is  that  organic  farming  should  become  a  normal  worldly  practice.  The   things  that  I enjoy  the most about the farmers market is seeing all the diverse foods  and  culture.  The  farmers  market  definitely  will  affect  my future because I will be more aware of  non­organic  foods  in  steer   away  from  them.  The  foods  that  I  would  normally  eat  I  now  would  change my diet to a more organic way.
