Sustainable farming in North Carolina

Since the 20th century development of industrial agricultural practices, food production has undergone a radical transformation. With machinery, pesticides and biotechnology, food supplies have increased and become more affordable but there have also been ecological and social consequences.

A community of farmers and grass-root organisations in North Carolina are planning, managing and implementing sustainable farming programmes in and around their communities. Oak is supporting the Conservation Fund who is working with these organisations to help promote awareness about sustainable living and help reduce barriers to healthy produce.
