Deep agroecology sounds like an abstract or technical concept but it's not. It's as basic as the stuff of life. In a broad sense the term describes you, your relationship with your food, with the people who touch the earth for you to bring forth your food, and with the plants, animals, and soil which make up your life-supporting food web.

We’re living in an era of historic transition. Each person, each household is shaping the present and the future with the money they spend to eat and thereby to support food systems, either good or bad. At present the dominant system is corrupted by chemicals, consolidation, polluting practices, unjust conditions for workers, and miserable circumstances for farm animals. That can all be changed, and millions of people around the world are actively working to change it in positive ways under the broad umbrella of agroecology--clean, just farms and food.

The deep agroecology approach offers emphasis to a subtle dimension, a realm of critical mystery and utmost relevance. In my conception, deep agroecology is our next natural, intelligent, and necessary evolutionary step. As a philosophy and an approach, deep agroecology strives to marry the subtle spiritual realities of human beings and planet earth into a balanced relationship with the gross physical realities of farms, food, and flesh.

Deep agroecology is a philosophical and practical guide to survival, with intimations of destiny and activation of our spiritual potential as individual human beings who are among the collective inhabitants of our earth. Supporting clean healthy farms and food is a high, noble, and heroic calling. It’s especially gallant at this juncture of time and circumstance.

Steven McFadden is an independent journalist and author of a broad range of non-fiction books on farms, food, community, and global wisdom ways. He's also the author of an epic, online nonfiction saga of North America Odyssey of the 8th Fire. Steven served as national coordinator for the annual Earth Day USA Celebration (1993), as director of The Wisdom Conservancy at Merriam Hill Education Center in Greenville, New Hampshire, and is currently director of Chiron Communications. A certified yoga instructor, and a  Reiki Master of long standing, he has transmitted the Reiki healing techniques to hundreds of students across North and Central America.
