Agriculture is a traditional word that means ‘the science or practice of farming including cultivation of
the soil for the growing of crops and the rearing of animals to provide food, wool and other products’.
This topic will be exploring new state of the art methods, information and thinking as well as case studies around agriculture, agroforestry, permaculture, aquaculture, soil, machinery, landownership both nationally and internationally. The thinklopedia pages will investigate case studies around different size and scale of farming, different ecosystems and will touch on finance - government and trade agreement funding and subsidies.
Transforming mindsets, attitudes and laws around land use throughout the UK and beyond will be one of the greatest contributors to the future health and wellbeing of humans and the biosphere. Restoring the health of ecosystems has huge impact on the balancing of our climate and increasing diversity. There are so many fascinating topics to explore here from new as well as ancient land technologies to ensure soil health and abundance to fungi technology, ethical and sustainable supply chains, issues around rewilding, industrial scale or intensive farming as well as land ownership, government laws and policies which regulate our behaviours.
