is an honourable, ancient art which we believe will play a vital
role in the transition we all must make towards a sustainable
future - for towns, for agriculture, and the
planet as a whole.
We are not talking about animal husbandry (the care and management
of animals). Or crops. Or even husbands.
We are talking about something
very much more. Husbandry
is an ancient word which means nothing less than 'the care and
management of nature and resources for living'. This meaning
has all but gone into obscurity. We are going to help renew
that meaning. It seems important.
The traditionally taught trade
of husbandry offers insights and techniques with which we can
practice managing nature’s ecologies
within our boundaries and capabilities. It is our view that a knowledge
of husbandry is vital to every trade, business or occupation, for
them to operate ethically and sustainably. Husbandry is the life-giving
business of looking after the interaction between human and planet.
