Aubrey Streit Krug
Director of Ecosphere Studies at The Land Institute
A big-picture diagnosis of the challenge of agriculture has led The Land Institute to offer a scientific prescription for the development of perennial polycultures. This healing work helps us recover people and land anew—and remember how growth and decay are both part of resilient, healthy systems. Transforming how we feed ourselves to fit within the ecosphere necessarily involves reimagining our ways of thinking, feeling, learning, and making a living in community.
