About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

For people involved in sustainable land management, and those in our food and primary production systems, agroecology represents an increasingly important understanding of the systems that they operate in. It is the fabric upon which regenerative agriculture practices are built.

The purpose of this micro-credential is to give these practitioners sufficient knowledge and confidence to engage in further learning about, and to begin the practical application of, agroecological theory and practice. In doing so this micro-credential supports the transition to sustainable and resilient systems of land use and production.
