AGROECOLOGY AND REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
There is no better place in the world to learn about farming than in the tropics where incredible species diversity lets you build and manage a complex agricultural system. This program aims to copy systems found in nature that promote ecologically responsible land use. You won’t only consider the best growing practices, but also examine the role food plays in your life and the lives and well being of the entire world’s population.
