"There is a tacit understanding that food is more important than shelter and is a need that has to be satisfied first. However, the production of food has an essential impact on the environment, and also of necessity impinges on architecture through the need to balance town or city with countryside." Brenda and Robert Vale, Green Architecture, 1991
