I will expound on my decision based on what I have read and learned about different agricultural methods, the interconnectedness of the earth’s species, elements and values. By creating this decision, it will impact not only my own business, but also the consumers, the community, the environment surrounding my business’ operations, and persons and habitats indirectly connected to my business.
