Dear AGROMIXer,

As we celebrate one year of advancing our research and dissemination of the benefits of mixed farming and agroforestry, we have plenty of news and inspiration to share with you - and don’t miss our interactive online platforms!

Last month we kicked off our field work with a trip to Wädenswil (Switzerland) bringing together the AGROMIX pilot sites that'll inform and develop our tools and models for the transition towards mixed farming and agroforestry. Hear more about this strengthening of our community of practice here!

Last month we participated in the Landscape2021 online conference, with a session on ‘Mixing crops, livestock and trees in farms and landscapes for people and planet’, held with our 'sister projects' MIXED and STARGATE. With speakers from Europe, Columbia and Tunisia, we explored how to ensure meaningful farmer participation, and how to make mixed farming and agroforestry the smart economic choice for farmers. Find our more about the session here!

Finally, our communications team have prepared a number of resources to deepen our knowledge of regenerative farming. The new ‘Transforming Landscapes’ web page uses visual storytelling to share information on the systems - check it out!

What's an Agroinfluencer?

We've been gathering stories from regenerative farming projects across the world, hearing the inspiration behind each, their visions of the food system of the future, as well as tips and ideas, straight from the field! 

Discover our storytelling series!

#TransformingLandscapes
"Agriculture is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions, and with increasing food insecurity and a rapidly growing global population, our response to these challenges must begin in the field." Discover the types, benefits and state of the art of mixed farming and agroforestry through visual storytelling!

Our participatory co-design has begun!
 

Hear about our first pilot site workshop in Wädenswil, where we focused on developing a co-design methodology for transitioning to mixed farming and agroforestry whilst considering a variety of stakeholders.

“What I gained from this conference is the exchange with other pilot projects; they are so unique and diverse that even if they produce different products they always offer ideas, and we expand our horizons.”

- Olivia Tavares, Institut Technique de l'Agriculture Biologique (France)

Resilience in Agricultural Landscapes: Dealing with Complexity in a Changing Climate

Once again we'll join forces with our 'sister' projects MIXED and STARGATE, providing an open space to explore measuring resilience, crop and livestock insurance, the role of Earth observation and early warning systems, as well as how to overthrow systems that no longer serve people and planet. Does this resonate?
