Maya Agroecology, Native Seeds and Homelands

The indigenous community organization, Ka’ Kuxtal Much Meyaj, in collaboration with Community Agroecology Network, is working with young people and elders in Yucatan, Mexico, to conserve indigenous Maya seeds and lands and recognize the ancestral contributions of women to Maya Agroecology. Local youth are documenting a shared concept of Maya Agroecology that weaves seed conservation diversity, spirituality connected to land, and local economic activities into community-based narratives that reflect the voices of Maya farm families, particularly women.
