George Richmond tells our video reporter Julian Greenbank why it’s so important for farming to migrate to an agroecological base.

Agroecology may be a new term to many but it is being promoted by many responsible environmental organisations. The British ‘Soil Association‘ defines agroecology as:

“… sustainable farming that works with nature”.

A transition is needed to more sustainable food systems– food systems that produce more, with more socio-economic benefits and with less environmental consequences. 

George urges all farmers to support this initiative. Watch the video below:
