People that can produce their own food are empowered.  They can become independent and self-sustaining.  MaaViva promotes sustainable agriculture practices such as permaculture and bio-dynamics.  Besides providing healthy food for people, these practices simultaneously enhance the soil, the environment, and wildlife habitat.  Although taking longer to establish, they optimize use and efficiency of other resources such as water and labor.
