‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s discourse and action on agriculture inspires contemporary food system visions

‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s discourse on agriculture, as well as His efforts to establish a farm community at ‘Adasiyyah in Jordan, provides an inspirational example for contemporary action to create just and sustainable food systems. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá‘s approach, which corresponds to elements of the current global plans of the Bahá’í community, is compared to those of recipients of the Rockefeller Food Systems Vision 2050 Prize, the work of the Bahá’í-inspired Smallholder Farmers Association in Haiti, and other agricultural initiatives.
