When people, land, and community are as one, all three members prosper; when they relate not as members but as competing interests, all three are exploited. By consulting nature as the source and measure of that membership, The Land Institute seeks to develop an agriculture that will save soil from being lost or poisoned while promoting a community life at once prosperous and enduring.
Our proposal is a new agriculture that eases farmers’ work, decreases their input costs—energy and synthetic chemicals—and restores the health of their land and therefore the health of people and our earthly companions, from soil micro-organisms to wildlife.
We intend to offer farmers perennial crops to be grown in ecologically resilient mixtures of two or more species and produce abundant food harvests. We draw on knowledge and techniques developed by plant breeders and other scientists over the past century, and by non-professionals for millennia, including the early peoples who first gave us agriculture.
