The AgriCultures Network promotes and shares knowledge on small-scale family farming and agroecology. Our members are based in Brazil, China, India, Kenya, the Netherlands, Peru and Senegal. This video gives you a flavour of who we are.
This film features a farmer, Mr. Mwema Ndung'i from Kyavuu village, Mutomo District in Kenya, who uses indigenous knowledge to eliminate queen ants from anthills.The video is produced by AgriCultures Network member ALIN.
An introduction to the ALIN's Community Knowledge Centres commonly referred to as Maarifa centres.
A Maarifa centre is a room or a ‘fabricated shipping container’ where communities access information resources. The centre is equipped with computers and internet access. It is an information hub where local knowledge is documented by communities with the support of field officers and shared widely.
As part of our 25th birthday celebrations, we hosted a challenging debate on the Future of Family Farming on 15 December 2009 in The Hague, the Netherlands.
Together with professionals from science, government, business, NGOs and partners from the South we explored what the world can expect from family farming and how it addresses global problems like climate change and food security. During this one-day event, international (field) experts shared their cutting edge perspectives on what small farmers have to offer to the world.
This documentary explores the role city farmers play in food security, as well as mitigate the effects of climate change. Filmed in Accra, the film shows how farmers put the basic concepts of urban agriculture into practice. It also explores the challenges of land acquisition, access to water and farm management.
