CAN researchers immerse themselves in the regions where they work and study the agroecology of the local communities. They learn how the farming and social systems work on site. Through collaborative relationships, farmer groups engage in the development of the research questions. This way the findings become directly useful to community members. Our field-study opportunities, farmer-to-farmer exchanges, research, internships, and an annual shortcourseinspire action for social and environmental justice.
