The Agroecosystem

No, it’s not an angry habitat.

There are very few environments on this planet that have not been touched by human beings. But is that a bad thing?

We often see ourselves as being outside the system but like all living things we take our sustenance and shelter from the environment in which we live. Our interaction with the landscape is not only inevitable but necessary for our well being, we just need to be thoughtful about it.

That’s why I like this word, agroecosystem. It implies functionality and diversity and that agriculture and the natural environment can co-exist. That’s what we strive for on the farm.
