Sonny Perdue on Environment
Republican GA Governor
Responsibility is to leave the land better than we found it
Perdue will always remember that America's agricultural bounty comes directly from the land. And today, those land resources sustain more than 320 million Americans and countless millions more around the globe. Perdue's father's words still ring true:
We're all stewards of the land, owned or rented, and our responsibility is to leave it better than we found it.
As a youngster growing up on a dairy and diversified row crop farm in rural Georgia, it was the family farm which shaped Sonny Perdue.
He has lived and breathed the exhilaration of a great crop and the despair and devastation of a drought. He learned by experience what his
father told him as a child, "If you take care of the land, the land will take care of you."
