Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 10 oz. plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • Salt, pepper

Directions:
  1. In a large skillet over low heat, warm the olive oil
  2. Add the garlic and fry gently until translucent, about 3 minutes.(Don't let the garlic burn. If it does, start over - burned garlic will ruin any dish.)

Organic farmers and experts in India organized to address the agriculture crisis facing the nation's 700 million farmers. Poor yields, degraded soils, and expensive chemical inputs arising from the cultivation of pesticide intensive crops, including genetically engineered cotton, have devastated India's rural economy. Crop failures and crushing debt led over 300 Indian farmers to commit suicide between May and July. To address this crisis, farmers from all over the country joined together August 2, 2006 to create the "Organic Vision 2020," a long term strategy to shift the country's farming focus back to ecological and traditional organic practices.
