I wonder what food production would look like in a world where we cared for the soil instead of mining it for cash crops.

@interneteh I read a book called Islandia that had a fictional continent where people took greater care with the land.

@sorreltyree I'll look into that! the way indigenous Hawaiians divvied up the land was cool. they managed it in slices that ran from the mountains through the forests to the beach, so everyone could work a little bit of all the island had. Chiefs had the power to declare certain fishes off limits so they could recover from overfishing, but nobody really owned anything. Also they would circulate who worked what land so nobody was tied to the land, like serfs in Europe
