The GRACE Communications Foundation aims to increase public awareness of health issues and environmental problems created by water, energy, and conventional agricultural systems. The website provides information on sustainable agricultural practices and local food systems as well as sustainable local food distribution. Critics may argue that conventional agriculture yields more produce and is more efficient than sustainable agriculture.
