Agroecology: The Bold Future of Farming in Africa Michael Farrelly, G. Clare Westwood, Stephen Boustred, Ed., Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) and Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement (TOAM) -- Launched 16 Feb 2017 "Agroecology applies ecological principles to the design and management of agroecosystems. Its practices diversify farms and farming landscapes, increase biodiversity, nurture soil health, and stimulate interactions between different species, such that the farm provides for its own soil organic matter, pest regulation and weed control, without resort to external chemical inputs."
Agroecology Case Studies Oakland Institute -- 2016 The thirty-three case studies shed light on the tremendous success of agroecological agriculture across the African continent. They demonstrate with facts and figures how an agricultural transformation respectful of the farmers and their environment can yield immense economic, social, and food security benefits while also fighting climate change and restoring soils and the environment.
Bhaskar Save, The Ghandi of Natural Farming Bharat Mansate (excerpt from his book "The Vision of Natural Farming), Institute of Science in Society -- 24 Feb 2014 "Natural farming is holistic and bio-diverse organic farming in harmony with nature. It is low-intervention, ecological and sustainable. In its purest advanced form, it is a ‘do-nothing’ way of farming where nature does everything, or almost everything, so very little needs to be done by the farmer."

Fertile Ground: Scaling Agroecology from the Ground Up Steve Brescia, Ed., Food First Books -- Mar 2017 “There are about 2.5 billion people in the world, on 500 million farms, involved with smallholder family agriculture and food production. Their creative capacity to farm productively and sustainably with nature, instead of against it, is perhaps the most powerful force that can be unleashed to overcome the interlinking challenges of hunger, poverty, climate change, and environmental degradation. This is the essence of agroecology.”
