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

the community garden is looking a bit barren except for the purslane and a bit of alfalfa...that will happen in april when the population of the garden is mostly transplanted annuals..it is not bereft of growth..though it is pretty much what was growing last time i went out there...
there's just more of it...i counted eleven spears of asparagus that have broken surface...
and the garlic that parker! planted in september of 2016, which obviously was not completely harvested, has volunteered for another season...so..garlic can grow as a perennial...
and the twelfth? just broke surface in my backyard..i will be planting asparagus seed i harvested last autumn fro the community garden out there shortly to see if i can repeat the spears from seed i managed to succeed at in the community garden out back.
an ex- industrial worker ( the continued automation of jobs, condensing of ownership, plant closings, trade wars, and degradation of living standards here has rendered me a former industrial worker...now just part-time lumpen proletariat) 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.
