It is a collection of Biodiversity is integral to the way they farm – including rotation, habitat creation, ‘weeds’ in the cropped area, intercropping of different species (e.g., wheat & peas) and genetic diversity of wheat being grown. In order to support this kind of farming and provide this food as affordably as possible, the network actors are working together to create a different kind of supply chain based on relationships of trust and collaboration rather than competition and commodification.
