AGROECOLOGY AND AGRICULTURE

As the population of the Earth continues to grow, the need for sustainable and benevolent agricultural practices becomes more important to ensure we can feed the world without destroying native habitats.

Agroecology applies permaculture concepts and principles to the design and management of food and agricultural systems to optimize the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment in consideration of the social aspects of sustainable and fair food systems.  It is a bottom-up, territorial process that encompasses diversity, synergies, efficiency, resilience, recycling, co-creation and sharing of knowledge, human and social values, culture and food traditions, responsible governance, and a circular and solidarity economy.   Agroecology addresses the root causes of problems in an integrated way and providing holistic and long-term solutions to empower producers and communities as key agents of change.
