Much has been written and debated about the current state of American agriculture and its future. Bioengineering and organic farming seem to stand at opposite ends of the agricultural spectrum.. How will we provide food for ourselves and for future generations? Many think that "sustainable agriculture" is the answer.

But what is "sustainable agriculture?" Here are two essays that explore that question and raise a few new ones.

What Is Sustainable Agriculture? by Dr. Gail W. Feenstra, Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program, University of California - Davis

A Sustainable Future? by Beth Waterhouse, editor of the quarterly Community Connections newsletter and past executive director of the Minnesota Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening rural communities in greater Minnesota.
