Paper Title:
Wendell Berry’s Ecological Agrarianism: a Vision for Agriculture and Environmental Protection
  Abstract

Farmers and environmentalists have been at odds with one other in America. Wendell Berry’s ecological agrarianism, however, with the health of the land and the whole ecosystem as its central concern, establishes a significant link between agrarianism and environmentalism. Envisioning a society of small farmers and city consumers with ecological virtues, Berry has reshaped the language of American agriculture debate, and fundamentally shifted the perceptions concerning agriculture education and policy making, thereby moving American agriculture toward the maintenance of ecological integrity.
