Applied Activity Part 1: Farm Map

Module Progress:

You’ve just heard from many voices defining what agroecology means to them, and learned about social movements that are using agroecology to achieve Food Sovereignty. At the center of all of it however, is land. More specifically, the relationship between people and land.

In this first applied activity, we invite you to choose a land-based site (your farm, the farm or garden you work and learn on, or any land you have access to i.e. a nearby park) and reflect on that land by creating a map.

Mapping can be a powerful process. Maps can represent a physical area, but they can also be a physical representation of different relationships. Watch this video on participatory mapping from MELCA Ethiopia to see how mapping can be used to empower communities to create their own futures.

Map it!

Your map can be created however you’d like. It can include whatever you consider to be part of your farm or land site. You can draw it, and then take a picture and upload it, you can use google earth to make a screenshot of the space or you could draw it using google drawings… or if you find a more creative way, please share it with us!

Complete your map and upload it to the site. Later, at the end of lesson two, you will continue using this map to learn about the natural history of this place.
