And then, rather ominously, he added, “They’re destroying the forest,” which I took to mean that he believes that his self-contained, forest-fed farm—which seemed almost as much a thing of the wild as the wild itself— might not survive. The only part of the wild that he tries to keep out are the feral pigs, for they would dig up the earth with their tusks if left to themselves. So, reluctantly, he had built a fence.

Jorge Posada, the Mexican artist who saw skeletons everywhere, would certainly view them this way and depict skeletons holding hoes and planting crops.

Berry argued famously for the importance of putting culture back in agriculture, and for that idea alone I admire him.
