Agriculture which is sustainable in terms of environmental impact and energy requirements. The goal is to make efficient use of resources, and allow nature to 'heal itself' by reversing erosion, pollution and land degradation.

See permaculture and organic gardening.

Another way of stating the goals of sustainable agriculture is that you work on growing really great soil in the long term, rather than growing one crop at a time at the expense of future crops.
