agroecology is

  • The application of ecology to the design and management of sustainable agroecosystems.

  • A whole-systems approach to agriculture and food systems development based on traditional knowledge, alternative agriculture, and local food system experiences.

  • Linking ecology, culture, economics, and society to sustain agricultural production, healthy environments, and viable food and farming communities.

 

This website is an information resource for developing sustainable food systems, emphasizing training, research, and application of agroecological science to solving real world problems. We also conduct training courses and intensive workshops including the International Short Course in Agroecology and support activities linking agroecology and sustainability.
