2019: Agroecology

2019: Agroecology

Forest Education Resources

Broadly speaking, agroecology is the application of ecological concepts and principles to agriculture. Agroecology as a system optimizes interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment while safeguarding the social aspects of a sustainable and fair food system. It is believed that agroecology can deliver food security and ecosystem health, while still promoting economic stability. In saying this, agroecology is location and situation specific – there is not a “one size fits all” approach. Rather, it offers a set of principles to govern food and farming systems – approaches that can be locally-adapted and regionally applied.

With increasing pressure on ecosystems and biodiversity, the demand for sustainable farming practices has never been greater. Through this study guide students will be introduced to agroecology, its key principals and the benefits of agroecology.
