AGRICULTURE or farming is the cultivation and breeding of animals, plants and fungi for food, fiber, biofuel, medicinal plants and other products used to sustain and enhance human life. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization, AGRI-CULTURE.
POLYCULTURE is agriculture using multiple crops in the same space, providing crop diversity in imitation of the diversity of natural ecosystems, Therefore not only sustain human life but life as a whole. Avoiding large stands of single crops, or monoculture. It includes multi-cropping, intercropping, companion planting, beneficial weeds, and alley cropping. It is the raising at the same time and place of more than one species of plant or animal (humans included). We strongly believe this is the future way of integrating nature into our lives.
In this moment in time we don't have a PERMANENT CULTURE. Our modern culture is subject to degeneration of land and ecosystems, if we don't have a sustainable agriculture, we don't have a sustainable culture . Restoring these systems will lead to abundance of food not only to support human live and culture, but refuel the natural cycles. By doing this we secure a rich PERMACULTURE for future generations.
