By focusing on immediate profit and ignoring millennia of knowledge, the world’s agro-industry is responsible for the unprecedented erosion of soils now occurring around the planet. Add climate change and dwindling natural resources to the picture and it would appear that even societies in the global north are no longer safe from famines. Voices of Transition presents an optimistic but clear-sighted vision explaining that these current and impending crises are, in fact, positive challenges! From France to Cuba, farmers and researchers demonstrate techniques, which imitate natural ecosystems and have the potential to transform our monocultural fields back into abundant, biodiverse and sustainable edible landscapes.
