Why I’d become an Organic Farmer and dump my Physics Job


Here’s a great interview with Vandana Shiva one of the world’s most dynamic and provocative thinkers.
A physicist, ecologist, and activist, she won the Right Livelihood Award in 1993. She directs the Research Foundation for Science, Technology, and Natural Resource Policy in New Delhi, India, and is an Associate Editor of The Ecologist magazine. Before becoming an activist, Shiva was one of India’s leading physicists.

An outspoken critic of industrialized globalized agriculture, Shiva has dedicated much of her life’s work to uncovering the devastating human and environmental impacts of corporate international trade agreements. Her books include Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit, Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply and Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis.

She says that if she had her time over again she would become an organic farmer. In this inspiring interview she offers some hope and advice on ways to break free and empower yourself and your community in a call to action. To start growing your own organic food.
