What Others Are Saying About Us…

“AGC is playing a critical role in the movement by collecting, curating, and archiving the special knowledge of farmers for the benefit of their fellow farmers–which is to say for the benefit of us all.”

What Others Are Saying About Us…

“AGC is capturing the immense wisdom of farmers at the Grassroots. Imagine Indigenous farmers from across the world meeting virtually to support each other and to expand their collective capacity for innovation. This is the extraordinary platform that AGC is about to launch.”

What Others Are Saying About Us…

“With AGC, something as simple as planting a bean becomes an awakening of consciousness and ultimately a road to freedom.”

What Others Are Saying About Us…

“The food movement desperately needs organizations like AGC. Its focus on farmer-to-farmer relationships inevitably produces dynamic, practical, thriving, communal enterprises that (can change) our local and global food systems through knowledge, innovation, and commitment to the flourishing of place.”

What Others Are Saying About Us…

“Farmers the world over work on the front lines of climate change as more variable weather and extremes increasingly disrupt food production. A Growing Culture provides exactly the kind of global farmer-to-farmer knowledge exchange needed to spark ecosystem-based innovations that will put us on the path to a climate-resilient future.”
