Agroecology in Canada

Food Sovereignty in Action
‘’Agroecology is much more than a set of technologies; it is a political and social system, a way of life, a form of resistance against corporate control of the food system, and quite simply the only means of achieving food sovereignty.’’ – Ayla Fenton, NFU Youth Vice-President
In 2015, the NFU’s International Program Committee (IPC) produced a booklet focusing on Agroecology and Food sovereignty.
English and french versions are available (click link to download PDF version).
You are invited to get multiple copies printed for wider distribution. To obtain a printers' version of the booklet, please email the NFU office.
Contributors: Bryan Dale,Ayla Fenton,Terran Giacomini, Jennie Greven, and Stephanie Wang. The booklet was produced with the financial support of Inter Pares
