Growing Stories from India

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter describes different discourses of agricultural systems to help us think through different modalities for human relations with the biotic community, including restoration agriculture and agroecology. Exploring the metaphors and narratives that underlie these agricultural practices enables us to trace the consequences of existing and alternative practices. Stories from farmers who have adopted these practices show how stories and metaphors provide alternate models for human–earth relations that then lead to changed practices.

Keywords:   restoration ecology, agroecology, narrative, metaphor, Aldo Leopold, Terroir, ritual, reciprocity, citizenship
