Energy flow in natural systems as a model for sustainable agriculture

Spring Valley Ecofarms is a non-profit organization focusing on education, research and outreach to promote more ecologically sustainable agriculture.  The seat is 100 acres in the Georgia Piedmont. The vision is to reduce reliance on external subsidies in agricultural systems through utilization of the free services of nature.  The goal is to define agricultural sustainability and to develop techniques to maintain and manage it.

 

 

Spring Valley EcoFarms is looking to transition from a research farm for sustainable agriculture to a site for a farm to table development, where folks wishing to live closer to the land could live in a community which is part of a farm on which their vegetables, fruits and eggs, and some meat is produced. A few years ago, Spring Valley Ecofarms hosted “Outstanding in the Field” which prepared a gourmet farm to table experience for local aficionados (see photo).
