Towards an Ecology of Agriculture: An Interview with Steve Gliessman (Ep 8)

While past episodes of A Worldview Apart explored agriculture and ecology, this episode brings the two together. Eric interviews agroecologist Steve Gliessman, professor emeritus at the University of California at Santa Cruz, about the ins and outs of his discipline. They talk about the differences between organic certification and agroecology, about the role of tillage in sustainable agriculture, and about the responsibilities shared by producers and consumers in driving food system change. The interview also explores the role of government policy in food system development, as well as how it relates to the food sovereignty movement in the United States.
