Deep Agroecology: Farms, Food, and Our Future

Adult; Other Nonfiction; (Market)

The ways we farm and the ways we eat will determine the destiny of life on earth. Farms and food are foundational for civilization. Right now our civilization is undergoing massive upheaval. We must build a new foundation, and that imperative task is going to take all of us. Deep Agroecology shows the way. The union of native wisdom ways with sophisticated, sustainable tools and practices can lead to the renewal and the elevation of all forms of life on Earth. Our next, necessary evolutionary step depends on spiritual intelligent, regenerative agriculture: deep agroecology. Agroecology is an ecological approach to growing food and fiber that appreciates farms and orchards as ecosystems. Internationally, agroecology is increasingly recognized as an approach capable of meeting productivity goals while replenishing the soil, sequestering climate destabilizing CO2, and striving toward justice for all the human beings and animals in the food system. Deep agroecology arises from recognition that the way we farm will determine the destiny of life on the earth. This inescapable reality necessarily involves every human being. "The future of humanity depends on our heeding the wisdom of deep agroecology.” – John Ikerd, author of Crisis and Opportunity: Sustainability in American Agriculture. While deep agroecology is new territory, it’s natural territory, not just for farmers, but for all people.
Reviews
Kirkus Reviews

"...Because deep agroecology draws on a combination of science and ancient wisdom, it also highlights how many indigenous cultures have, for centuries, recognized the importance of strong, healthy communities, and how they're dependent on the planet on which they live...

"...An enlightening work of ecological thought."  ~ Kirkus Reviews, Nov. 2019

Midwest Book Reviews

"...deep agroecology is more than the promotion of another growing system. It represent a fundamental change in the perceptions of humans about the choices they make in planting, harvesting, and eating food...The result is a hard hitting, powerful survey that takes the food system ideal a step further..."  - Diane C. Donovan for Midwest Book Review, Nov. 2019
