Agriculture has been losing jobs for decades.
Could things start going the other way?
Amidst the increasing heat and scarcity of water in California, a farmer in Sebastopol has managed to grow $100,000 of food per acre, using one-tenth the normal water, creating four-foot deep topsoil, and getting 5 – 7 crops a year – without plowing, weeding, or spraying.

And the market value of crops from these farms supports the local skilled workers needed to produce them.
