Wendell Berry takes a specific approach to stewardship of the natural world in his work “Renewing Husbandry.” He relates his life on a farm, and how it became mechanized during his teenage years, to how man is really meant to interact with nature, and how man should not treat nature. He describes husbandry of the natural world in terms of husbandry of a family. A husband and father must nurture, protect, and cultivate his family in order to see them thrive. Berry says the same is true of man and his relationship to the land.
