In the modern times we live in, it’s easy to forget just how reliant we are on the natural world. Especially as technology advances, solving life’s challenges and sometimes providing solutions to problems we didn’t even know we had. But with that ‘progression’ comes further separation from our relationship with the natural world; and that can result in unintended consequences.

But what is it and is it any different to Integrated Farming that has been promoted by organisations such as LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) since it’s establishment 1991?
