Agroecology can help fix our broken food system. Here’s how. | Ensia

Agroecology can help fix our broken food system. Here’s how. | Ensia | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

“In short, there’s a systems problem with the many incarnations of ‘sustainable food.’ Good intentions notwithstanding, most alternatives leave untouched the underlying structures and forces of the agri-food system. They don’t ask how farmers can listen to their land, scientists can listen to farmers, eaters can listen to restaurant workers and the government can listen to people’s needs. Sustainable food, it turns out, lacks a science with which to deal with a system as complex as farming and food. But there is an approach that embraces complexity and change. It involves developing the capacity to listen, to grow new connections, and to build solidarity among animals, plants and people. It’s called agroecology.”
