Event Details

Agroecology is our best option for creating an agrifood system capable of nurturing people, societies, and the planet. But it is still not widespread. Fertile Ground, edited by Groundswell International‘s executive director Steve Brescia, offers nine case studies authored by agroecologists from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, North America, and Europe, that demonstrate how the endogenous practice of agroecology can be “scaled” so that it is known by more farmers, practiced more deeply, and integrated in planning and policy.

Fertile Ground features success stories on agroecology from around the world. These case studies serve as an inspirational guidebook for transformation – especially in today’s political climate. Join Food First and agroecology discussants for an interactive panel discussion on the importance and urgency of the role of agroecology to transform and reshape the agrifood system.

If you’re feeling defeated in today’s political climate, & have questions about how to move forward, you won’t want to miss this event.
