“ Can Agriculture help biodiversity?”

“Industrial agricultural practices have helped us produce more food, but they have also undermined the ecological systems we depend on.  Industrial agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, loss of biodiversity and water pollution. It is also a major contributor to climate change.  If we want future generations to be healthy and happy, we need to change the way we produce food.  Regenerative agriculture offers alternative methods of food production that can prevent the degradation of ecosystems. Please join Alberto Suarez-Esteban from Nature’s Apprentice Farm to hear about how agriculture can help biodiversity and learn tips that you can apply in your garden.”
