What is agroforestry and its importance for the global sustainable agriculture

"Life in Syntropy" is the new short film from Agenda Gotsch that put together some of the most remarkable experiences in Syntropic Agriculture.

Agroforestry is an integrated approach of using the interactive benefits from combining trees and shrubs with crops. It combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, profitable, healthy and sustainable land-use systems.

This short, genial, documentary, about the wonderful work of Agenda Gotsch in Syntropy agriculture, show us how this great man, Ernst Gotsch, managed to turn 1,200 hectares of desert area in an oasis of life and abundance of food, a perfect balance between large-scale agriculture and eco-system, he manage this so well, to the point of having changed the climate and soil of his property.

Sustainable agriculture should involve the successful management of resources for agriculture to satisfy changing human needs, while maintaining or enhancing the quality of the environment and conserving natural resources.

The rapid depletion of forest resources and agricultural sustainability could be impacted significantly through agroforestry practices and international certification labels for products from sustainable agriculture and farming like Friend of the Earth.

Of course, for me and for most part of people, it is an impossible mission turn 1,200 hectares of desert area in an oasis.  But an easy way to start help the environment is looking for certified sustainable agriculture and farming labels when buying food products at the supermarket.
