Families, communities, collectives, organizations and movements are the fertile soil in which agroecology flourishes. Collective self-organization and action are what make it possibleto scale-up agroecology, build local food systems, and challenge corporate control of our food system.

Agroecology is based on collectives. Families, communities, organizations and movements are central to make agroecology alive.
