In a new video, Elske Hageraats from the Netherlands explains why and how she has become an agroecological farmer.
“The main advantage is that it makes my life very beautiful”, says Elske. She then goes on to mention other social, political and ecological reasons for her choice to “farm with nature” instead of pursuing an academic career.
The video is in English with subtitles in Spanish. It was made by Julian Cortes for farmers of the Ecomun cooperative in Colombia.
