How can we enjoy a more diverse range of fruits and nuts without the problems of pest and disease?
Like many others, I believed that we can only enjoy a more diverse range of fruits and nuts by importing them in to the country. I hadn't really thought about the problems of pest and disease, because my thought stopped at 'we couldn't grow them here.' This video explains that the usage of land has become monotonous and we are being forced to import items which we could grow ourselves!
Some of the positive impacts caused by going plant-based would be:-
- more diversity of fruit, nuts and shrubs
- there would be LESS pest and disease problems
- more tree habitats
- a positive effect on climate change

"The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world." Michael Pollan
