Whole Health Agriculture
Welcome to Whole Health Agriculture (WHAg), a community of farmers, consumers, and professionals united in our aim to support and develop holistic farming which we believe holds the key to positive health.
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY THAT? We define holistic farming or ‘whole health’ farming as those approaches that work with nature respecting the principle that our own health is linked to the health of the entire farm and the wider environment.
Recognition and reward for holistic farming and food production systems that respect the entire ecosystem.
To promote the concept and practice of holistic farming systems which enhance the health and wellbeing of soil, plants, animals and people.
WHY THE NEED?
We are facing a worldwide health crisis – in our natural resources, in our ecosystems, in crops, animals and humans. Dis-ease is rife in all of these areas; it threatens to overwhelm us if we continue our folly of failing to recognise that the health of all of these is inextricably linked.
Intensive farming and food production systems have contributed to:
– antibiotic resistance
– environmental damage
– poor animal welfare
– food that is low in nutritional value, high in toxic residues
– disconnection between farmers and the people they work to feed
HOWEVER, we are building a platform for change. We are determined to challenge and change conventional attitudes to food, farming and health and to get recognition for holistic farming – for its contribution to our health and to the health of our planet. JOIN US!
