Campesino a Campesino: Scaling Out Agroecological Practices in Canada and Puerto Rico LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop, participants will learn from farmers from Puerto Rico and Canada about their experiences with the farmer-to-farmer methodology—a horizontal, farmer-led process of disseminating agroecological practices to other farmers in their respective regions. This workshop will be led by members of La Via Campesina International and will lead into a second workshop on the People’s Agroecology Process, a coordinated action among different communities to disseminate agroecological practices and at the same time build power among food producers and consumers to achieve food sovereignty.
