Agroecology & Farming Solutions

Hands in soil

Agroecology is the science behind sustainable agriculture, from the ground up. It encourages democratic, decentralized decision-making by farmers and incorporates practical, low cost and ecology-based technologies for productive farming.

Not only do agroecological farming methods strengthen ecological and economic resilience in the face of today's climate, water and energy crises, they offer a path forward for growing food to feed us all.

Our Focus


Agroecology provides a robust set of solutions to the environmental and economic pressures facing agriculture today.


Farmers around the globe have been cultivating and implementing agroecological practices for generations.


Agroecological farming works. It's productive, strengthens rural communities and sustains regional food economies.
