What an important and challenging issue. I love the idea of a community of women teaching and taking agricultural business classes together, which leads them to a community farming setup, where they can work together to raise biofuels, while also having food security through allocated plots of land. Adding to the curriculum lessons on sustainable farming will be important to ensure that fertilizer doesn't pollute local water sources; that monocultures do not threaten the existence of the farm, and that the land is used with complementary crops that don't devastate the soil after a few seasons.
