I grew up in a beautiful valley in northern Argentine Patagonia. We were self-sufficient, growing our own veggies and fruits, milking our two cows, raising our chickens, etc. We lived on an apple farm, so we sold and exported our apple crops through small, local coorporatives. We had a diversity of products, as well as the joy of wild birds, butterflies and chirping insects. All that has changed drastically, for the worse.
