We want to change the way food is grown in India. Currently, we are living with a broken food system that needs to be replaced urgently for the benefit of all us and the planet.
We believe that the future of agriculture is Ecological Agriculture (EA) which relies on and protects nature by making use of natural ecosystem functions and agro-biodiversity, integrating these into agro-ecological systems that ensure agricultural resilience, food security and food sovereignty and sustainable farmer livelihoods.
Ecological Farming combines modern science and innovation with respect for nature and biodiversity. It ensures healthy farming and healthy food. It does not contaminate the environment with chemical inputs or use genetically engineered crops instead makes use of. And it places people and farmers – consumers and producers at its very heart, rather than the corporations who control our food now.
We want you to take action because together we're strong.
