The Solution - Ecological Farming

Genetic Engineering. Corporate control of people's food. Over reliance on pesticides and herbicides are not the solutions. So what is? Ecological Farming. It's safe. It's do-able. And it's happening now. Help us support farming for the future.

In favor of Ecological Farming:

  • Ecological farming keeps food production in the hands of farmers and away from corporate control.
  • Ecological farming helps cope with climate change.
  • 2.6 billion small-scale farmers already produce the majority of the world's food.
  • Ecological farming is proven to be more profitable for farmers in studies from Europe, Africa, Asia and America.
