Maya Agroecology

In the Campeche region of the Yucatan Penninsula, Mexico, the Community Agroecology Network (CAN) and Ka’ Kuxtal Much Meyaj (KKMM) are collaborating to sustain Mayan spirituality within a Maya Agroecology which honors Mother Earth as a living being. To that end, CAN and KKMM accompany women, youth, and families within the Network of Campesinos and Seed Guardians in the practice of a Mayan Agroecology, to strengthen the rural economy of Maya families through the sowing of native seed varieties, and facilitate dialogues about Maya native seed recuperation and community relationships with the use of spatial mapping.
