"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Ecology

 

 

   Agroecology is the study, design, and management of ecological interactions in agricultural ecosystems to improve agricultural production and benefit the local biodiversity.

 

   By understanding ecological relationships and processes, agricultural systems can be manipulated to improve production with fewer negative environmental or social impacts and fewer external inputs.

 

   In Haiti,  implementing a well-defined agroecology plan will allow farmers to produce more with the resources they have access to.
