Our food system is in crisis: many of the world’s countries are dependent on importing the majority of their food, and, as the COVID19 pandemic makes clear, our global supply chain is vulnerable to disruption.

Ecology Action provides a program in which people around the world learn to use “closed loop” sustainable and regenerative farming, called GROW BIOINTENSIVE® (GB). GB empowers people everywhere to grow food more food in less space, to build soil fertility by sequestering carbon and recycling nutrients efficiently, and to conserve precious natural resources, including using as little as 1/3 the water per pound of food produced compared with other practices!
