Abstract

Knowledge issues are a critical dimension in the politics of the sustainable agriculture movement. Recent research has examined how sustainable farming networks facilitate the creation and exchange of local knowledge about alternative practices and ideas. This article extends those analyses by exploring the role of social location in that knowledge creation and exchange process, based on field research in a sustainable farming network organized by and for women farmers. Different experiences in everyday life may create multiple and partial perspectives from which localknowledge for sustainability is generated and exchanged.
