Food hubs are not replacement for farmers markets

Food hubs are not replacements for farmers markets. Farmers markets still give producers the chance to have direct contact with their customers. Food hubs are helpful for producers who don't have time to sell at farmers markets.

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems: Agroecology

Aholistic and integrated approach to sustainable agriculture and food systems is called agroecology. It seeks to improve the interactions between plants, animals, humans and the environment while also addressing the need for socially equitable food systems in which people can choose their food and where it is produced. Over the last few decades, the concept of aecology has evolved from a focus on fields and farms to encompass the entire agriculture and food systems.

It now includes the ecological, socio-cultural, technological, economic and political dimensions of food systems. The 10 Elements of agroecology framework was developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization. The 10 Elements are interdependent and represent a simplified way to think about reality.

They describe essential components, key interactions, and desired enabling conditions in a sustainable agriculture and food system. The 10 Elements are useful analytical tools for decision-making when planning, implementing, managing, and evaluating afroecological transitions. Climate shocks and stressors can affect agriculture and food systems.

Climate change can be mitigated and adaptation solutions can be provided by diverse, well-integrated agricultural systems. By re-localizing food systems and shortening value-chains, agroecological systems are better able to resist shocks such as market disruptions and Pandemics. The solutions provided by Agroecology are innovative and employment opportunities for youth.

Knowledge intensive, socially responsible, innovative, and skilled labour agricultural production are some of the qualities of agroecology. As a grassroots paradigm for sustainable rural development, the use of the word "agroecology" means empowering people and communities to become their own agents of change. Women are building a new way of life by using their skills to preserve and grow native seeds, produce healthy food without pesticides, raise local and indigenous livestock, and protect rivers, lakes and seas.
