Day 38: Sustainability of Farmers

#FridayThoughts We are always so focused on environmental #sustainability when farmers are our most precious resource. With over 40% of farmers dealing with very high stress levels, 60% facing anxiety and 35% meeting the classification of depression. What about farmer sustainability?
