Seeing the Farm as a Living Organism

What does it mean to view our farms as living biodiverse organisms? How can we manage our farms using this lens?

Keynote: Practicing Sacred Agriculture

In past times the development of agriculture arose out of the teachings of the mystery schools. The cultivation of crops and animals was a way of linking human existence with the work of the divine world. The focus went beyond simply producing foodstuffs. Work on the land was simultaneously work on the relationship between the human being and the cosmos. In this way agriculture had a sacred dimension. The question is, can this sense of the sacred be discovered again today in the pressurized demands of production oriented agriculture?

Keynote: Peak Money and the Ecological Transition

Even though ecological agriculture occupies a growing niche in the food market, many farmers find that the more they produce with that market in mind, the less "ecological" they become. Money exercises a relentless pressure on farmers to compromise their deeply held values: often, it seems, the best financial decision is not the best ecological decision or the best decision for one's community and future generations.
