Mission Statement, Officers, Documents, Important Past Events


Updated November 2010

The Agroecology Section will promote an understanding of the importance of the application of ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable Agroecosystems among ecologists, agriculturists, and members of related disciplines. Other objectives include encouraging education and research in Agroecology, sponsoring meetings and publications for the communication of research and educational activities in Agroecology, and increasing student participation in the Society.

Our goal is to promote holistic research that works within the local ecosystem to sustain the environmental and economic viability of a community through the promotion of natural farming systems.
