I think that working the land is eco-friendly. That was our "curse" but it has been our blessing. Farming is healthy for the earth and for our bodies. But we are not doing what we are supposed to be doing. ***This will be my personal rant*** Organic farming honors God and our own bodies. But now we have all this industrialized farming (genetically modified seeds, pesticides, herbacides, etc.) This not only pollutes the environment and our water sources, but it is terrible for our bodies, giving us cancer, ruining the nutritious value of the food, etc.
I am totally against conventional farming. And spiritually speaking Adam was supposed to work the land and by the sweat of his brown and labor he was to reap a harvest. Our modern agriculture has used "scientific advances" to sidestep this and our earth and our health is paying the price. Look at how unhealthy we have become. Most people don't even eat real food anymore.
