The farm is part of the ecosystem at large. In addition to growing food, is there a case to ‘grow’ ecosystem services that could not only improve yield, mitigate the effects of weather extremes, improve the sustainability and value of the farm, and enhance the general environment for you and your customers. The volatility of the physical environment and decrease in biodiversity are changing quickly, often faster than the nature can adapt. Is it time to re-think the contribution of the environment to the farm? How we’re going to approach this restoration and measure it?
