Projects per year
Sustainable projects like agroecology are imagined and instituted at different scales. Whether understood as a science, a political movement or a practice, the viability of agroecology as an alternative to mainstream agriculture partly depends on the scale at which it is (or can be) implemented. Contrary to localized forms of agroecology in the US or regional frameworks for agroecology in the rest of Latin America, Cuban agroecology is shaped by nationalist norms and institutions of state socialism. While associations between agroecology and the Cuban nation state are contested in everyday life, I argue that they remain important ways farmers moralize their agroecological practices. Such moral connectivities may shed light on similar projects for ethical foodways in the postsocialist world.
