Solar energy and Agroecology Workshop from July 20 -30.2018 in HEPA
The workshop has three components:
1. Agricultural Historical Analysis
2. Agroecology and Eco-Farming Practice
3. Solar energy and its practice use in eco-farming
The first component will analyze the environmental and social problems caused by industrial agriculture and explain why industrial agriculture is unsustainable. It will then present existing alternatives to industrial agriculture – agroecology, organic farming, permaculture, and ecofarming – carefully describing the unique characteristic of each, and what they share with each other. Opportunities will be provided for daily observation and practice on an existing eco-farm inside HEPA.
The second component will practice Eco-Farming Designing Principles in the HEPA Farming System
The third component will describe the theory and practice of solar energy and provide practice in the use of solar energy in eco-farming.
