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.
