Volume 9

Mother Earth coverObtaining ecological balance is one of the four key principles of organic farming, and is explored in detail in this issue. First, our Chief Executive Helen Browning discusses the interaction between wildlife and farming; then Michel Pimbert, Ulrich Schmutz and Julia Wright of Coventry University, look at the role of an agro-ecological approach to farming, and how it might be encouraged; and finally in Patrick Mulvany's discussion of the absolute need to preserve genetic diversity in agriculture. We also feature Dr Hugh Sinclair in a fascinating piece originally printed in Mother Earth in 1958, and Ben Patten, founder of a new web site FarmDrop, who brings us back to the present.
