    Sustainable Agriculture: A Nutrition and Health Perspective

    Sustainability is often defined using a three-pronged, social, economic, and environmental approach. However, nutrition and health, a vital component of sustainability is often not addressed or loosely categorized under the social pillar. The Sustainable, Resilient, Healthy, Food and Water System (SRHFWS) framework, in contrast, includes four pillars, nutrition and health, social and cultural identity, economic vitality, and environmental stewardship. This presentation will provide examples of how the framework can be utilized to critically assess aspects of a food system and evaluate connections between agriculture, nutrition, and human health.

    Livestock on the Land Poster

Up close, however, it’s a story about people – the farmers driven by love of family, land and livestock to seek more resilient solutions, and the community that emerges when livestock are on the land.
