Organic Agriculture and Circular Economy

A circular economy is a model of produc- tion and consumption designed to use resources more efficiently and to reduce waste and the production of refuse by ex- tending the life cycle of products as much as possible. Organic farming is based on the sustenance and enhancement of life and aims to nourish plants mainly through the action of the soil ecosystem. Based on the principles of health, ecology, fairness and care, it’s a perfect circular-economy model which supports and encourages healthy soil, plants, animals, human beings … and a healthy planet. Many agroecological practices constitute concrete examples of circularity.
