''Organic agriculture is still a substitution farming where chemicals are substituted with biological inputs which are imported, such as seeds, manure, biopesticides, and more,'' said Dr. Appachanda Thimmaiah, head of the program. Regenerative organic agriculture, on the other hand, is a self-sufficient, closed-loop system in which all the inputs required for farming are produced by farmers on their farms using only the naturally available resources within their farms. It's a holistic system of food production where a farmer's every action leads to an incremental improvement in the quality of soil, food, and the environment.
''This course will be of interest to anyone who has a passion to create radical change in the current food and agriculture systems,'' says Dr. Thimmaiah. ''From home gardening, to transforming the urban landscape with neighborhood food forests, to professional organic farming and food entrepreneurship, to food activism and advocacy—this program is a great first step in taking on each of these missions.''
