Episode 23: Agroecology with Steve Brescia (Groundswell International)


What is agroecology, you ask? Agroecology is a style of farming that makes the best use of nature's goods and services without inflicting any harm on earth's resources. Often confused with afroecology (the practice of farming with disco-style hair), it presents an exciting yet surprisingly familiar way that our food production system can reorganize itself more sustainably. Steve Brescia, Executive Director of Groundswell International, joins us to explain how farming "the way our grandparents did" can unlock a trove of sustainable tools as we adapt to changing climates.
