12/29/10 Eric Herm went from sportscaster to farmer. Meria Heller interviews Eric on his fabulous book “Son of A Farmer, Child of the Earth, A Path to Agriculture’s Higher Consciousness”. We have less than 1% of our farmers left in America – how would we survive another Great Depression? After the Civil War 67% of Americans farmed and were self sufficient; Today we have more prisoners than farmers; Food production needs to be the center of every community; Brainstained where nature is concerned; Our bodies and the food we eat; GM food is TOXIC, animals won’t eat it if given a choice; Immune system and nature; there is power in knowledge, and we HAVE the power; Big Pharma and Big Farma; Hollywood’s depiction of farmers – why? ecological farming heals the Earth; the pesticide industry doesn’t need to exist; anti depressants; Seeds and life; Monsanto is to the agricultural world what Goldman Sachs is to the financial world; 400% increase in food allergies; clean water running out; Findhorn Garden in Scotland. Eric is a farmer who knows his politics and spirituality. Great combo!
