Neycha: The First Agroecology Accelerator and Fund

Agroecological enterprises are a key element in the transformation towards just and sustainable food systems. To enable them to scale up, we and our partner organization Shona set up the Neycha Accelerator and Fund to provide capacity building, networking and access to capital.
Knowledge

Sounding Soil – healthy soil makes noise

Soils that are alive make sounds – and soils that are cultivated in different ways sound different from one another. The research and art project “Sounding Soil” makes these sounds audible. Biovision uses “Sounding Soil” to sensitise the population, students, farmers and decision makers about sustainably managing soils.

How agroecological is my initiative?

Biovision promotes agroecology to leverage a sustainable food system. Entrepreneurs, project leaders and people responsible for initiatives often do not know how much their projects or business model correspond to the 13 principles of agroecology, though. To make their assessments easier (and anchor agroecology more firmly as a result), Biovision has developed the Business Agroecology Criteria Tool, or B-ACT for short.
