Summary

The damage that the current food industry is causing to public health and the environment demands us to continue generating alternatives that are increasingly fair, transparent, comprehensive, community oriented, and in harmony with nature in both rural and urban areas. That is why we will promote food production in urban and peri-urban environments where the population depends on employment and consumption, and barely has the skills and means to produce and exchange food.

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic that has shaken the world presents us with new challenges and questions regarding the characteristics and behaviours of humanity itself, of life and of the natural environments we inhabit. Climate change and genetic erosion with the loss of biodiversity are two phenomena that reinforce the crisis we are experiencing, along with the food and economic industry that has taken human health to devastating dimensions. In Mexico alone, 16% of the population has diabetes.

Solution

With this project we want to incorporate an agro-ecological vision and practice among 40 families from peri-urban municipalities in the Central Valleys and the city of Oaxaca as a way of life and resistance in contexts of socio-environmental, economic and health crises such as the one we are experiencing. This will be achieved through a training process in agro-ecology and food sovereignty; accompaniment and technical assistance in urban horticulture and collective learning about production.

Long-Term Impact

At least 40 urban families living in the city of Oaxaca will have a minimum base of food production for their own consumption, produced in their gardens and from other people with whom they exchange food.
