Organic rather than transgenetic.
Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

a quick look in the bag that held the mashua tubers told me all i needed to know and when i got home from work they went straight outside and into separate containers to spend the season growing more tubers...two more that were ready to go went into peat pots to be transplanted into my bed at the community garden this coming thursday ( planting day )...these are members of the nasturtium family and they and the flower of the same name are both andean in origin...grown by the inca...and both the flower and the tuber are edible...one a delicacy, one everyday food...proletarian that i am i chose the tuber.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
