The cultivation of animals, plants, fungi and other life forms can be for food, fiber, biofuel, and other products that are used to maintain life is called agriculture, which is also called farming.

She thinks that by getting kids into something that help others around the world makes yourself feel proud of yourself that you accomplished something.
