Practicing Agroecology in the City

May 18, 2015

Miguel Altieri's Lab uses the concepts of agroecology to obtain a deep understanding of the nature of agroecosystems and the principles by which they function. Through research, writings, teaching, and outreach, the lab has aided in the emergence of agroecology as the discipline that provides the basic ecological principles for how to study, design, and manage sustainable agroecosystems that are productive while conserving natural resources, and that are also culturally-sensitive, socially-just and economically viable. Check out their recent work focused on urban agriculture in this photoblog!
