Agroecology: Feeding the World
Farming operations characterized by heavy chemical inputs and monocrop fields are causing severe damage to ecosystems worldwide. The negative impact of such practices has promoted renewed interest in sustainable agriculture systems, such as agroecology. Agroecological practices are characterized by on-farm biodiversity and the recycling local natural materials, which promotes the conservation and improves the quality of soil and water resources. Together we will explore how this socially and environmentally sustainable approach can feed our global community.
