The first time humans start to grow crops (barley and wheat) at Fertile Crescent (now-a-day Egypt and Mesopotamia regions, near rivers) was a significant moment. Humans in these regions no longer need to go hungry, or have to move from place to place with season changes. This also means that people live more stable lives, live in villages or other close quarters, and start to have larger families. Around 8000 BC, people began to harness animal power, grow cash crops (cottons, silk), and turn part of agriculture into an industry.
