From dairy farmers to the average American, changes in agriculture over the years have affected the way each one of us lives our lives.
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, located in Washington, D.C., recently launched a project to preserve America’s agricultural heritage through the creation of a crowdsourced online scrapbook. Motivation for the project was sparked by the sentiment that, “the history of American agriculture has been marked by tremendous transformations. Over the past seventy years, farming has become both more efficient and more sustainable, even as fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers.”
In the video above, Dr. Jason Clay, Senior Vice President at World Wildlife Fund, talks about the importance of using the expertise of every farmer in order to feed our future population in an effective and sustainable way.
