Sustainable Agriculture & Animal Husbandry

A permaculture system of agriculture and ethical and sustainable animal husbandry are absolutely necessary to produce enough food for over 7 billion people without degrading the soil and wider ecology on which we all depend. This is based on the research and work of David Holmgren and others and the 12 principles on which permaculture is based. Sustainable animal husbandry rejects the battery-farm system, steroids and antibiotic heavy profit driven system, currently the dominant system on the planet, in favour of ethical animal rearing and evidence based sustainable models of animal husbandry. It would also better educate the global population of the health benefits of a more balanced diet involving a reduction in the quantity of meat eaten and/or the health benefits of a vegetarian diet.
