In this context, we want to let you know that agroecology consists of the most natural ecology techniques, such as the use of organic / organic fertilizers and the rotation of crops. The idea is to create a
food production that is socially just, economically viable and ecologically sustainable – the basic principle is the conscious use of resources, which prevents waste, that is to produce and increase productivity through local resources, “explains Barnete. Aagroecology is a science that requires basic ecological principles for the study and treatment of ecosystems that are both productive and resource-conserving, culturally sensitive, socially viable and economically feasible,

The purpose of the project is to “build a partnership for agroecological production with the knowledge of farmers organized in Cooperatives and train promoters of forestry to strengthen the method of establishing organic production model methodology.”
