dc.description.abstract Ismael talks about his journey with agroecology after taking a course with El Josco Bravo. He highlights key issues with industrialized agriculture and its agroecological alternatives and talks about the importance of teaching the youth about agriculture and its ties to food security. He also discusses his family’s history with agriculture. His great grandmother worked the land to raise seven daughters after becoming widowed. Being in touch with agriculture and agroecology has allowed Ismael to share a common bond with some of his relatives. It’s also helped him relate the principles he’s learned about agroecology now, to old traditional agricultural practices that his great grandparents used.
