Frequently referred to as sustainable agricultures because sustainability is dependent upon the ecological and infrastructural conditions of the particular area as well as the structural and individual capacities of the community, farmer(s) and others involved, the term captures three interrelated spheres of human activity. These are environmental stewardship, economic viability, and social justice.
To borrow from John Ikerd, if we pollute the air or water, or the soil loses fertility, it is not sustainable; if farmers cannot make a living, it is not sustainable. And LESSON adds, only when we respect each other and find common ground, is it sustainable.
Here you will find more information about sustainable agriculture(s): these are the resources LESSON turns to in structuring our programs and projects.
