Agriculture was a major topic of discussion at the annual meeting of the American Association of Geographer. Small farmers in developing countries was a popular topic with less focus on small farmers in developed countries. The successes and failures of community and school garden’s were also explored.
Themes for agriculture research moving forward were the need for research, policy and the food movement to work simultaneously in order to create change in the food system. There was also a discussion on how researchers could work with farmers and activists to help each other reach their respective goals.
