This refers to reliable food networks that ensure that communities still have access to healthy nourishing food even during crises.
This refers to agricultural practices that apply ecological processes. It is inspired by natural ecosystems and takes into account soil fertility, water availability and climate change. Permaculture is a good example.
This refers to agricultural design that focuses on systems thinking which is based on natural ecosystems. The purpose is to create environments that are harmonious and productive without much energy and time spent to maintain them.
This refers to a self-sustaining agroforestry approach that leverages on the collaboration and interaction of different plants which encourages regeneration while reducing the need for synthetic pesticides and fertilisers
Syntropic agroforestry is an intensive form of regenerative agroforestry that is dependent on natural succession. Syntropy refers to healthy collaboration that promotes life; the opposite is entropy, which refers to competition and therefore degraded life.
