Agroecology: The Solution to the Food Price Crisis ft. Luwayo Biswick, Malawian Permaculture Farmer

July 20, 2022

The world is currently in the midst of a food price crisis, with prices of staple foods and agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides skyrocketing on global markets. As usual, the most vulnerable are being hit the hardest by these rising prices.

The good news is that more and more farmers are breaking free from the reliance on expensive and polluting pesticides and fertilizers to feed themselves and their communities.

In Malawi, Luwayo and Grace Biswick run the Permaculture Paradise Institute. By using agroecological practices, they have transformed their land to produce an abundant diversity of crops year-round. They have also made their livelihoods resilient to climate shocks and market volatility, while saving on agricultural inputs.

Hear their story and how they are helping scale up agroecology in a country in urgent need of a new path forward on the latest episode of For Land & Life – The Oakland Institute Podcast.
