Agroecology – what’s it all about?

Standard

Went to a Nourish/Scottish Environment Link seminar exploring Agroecology and the new French laws on this topic at the Scottish Parliament last week…. so lots of agroecology info/links coming this way….

Parliamentary working group event last year – http://agroecology-appg.org/ourwork/policies-for-local-food-how-local-and-national-government-can-support-sustainable-local-food/

Principles of agroecology – http://agroecology-appg.org/about/what-is-agroecology/

In short “Agroecology uses biological principles to increase farm and productivity while conserving natural resources, as in organic farming, but also takes into account the wider social and economic context as it affects farmers and rural communities”.
