Learning from,
in, and with independent community and activist archives: The past in our present and future

There is growing interest in the informal and non-formal learning and knowledge practices of community organising, popular struggles and social movements.
Although often neglected by dominant strands of adult education scholarship, some scholars suggest that many of the most critical ideas about social change are produced as people struggle collectively
for a better world.

************************************************

Faced with a global threat to food security, it is perfectly possible that society will respond, not by a dystopian disintegration, but rather by reasserting co-operative traditions. This book, by a leading expert in urban agriculture, offers a genuine solution to today’s global food crisis. By contributing more to feeding themselves, cities can allow breathing space for the rural sector to convert to more organic sustainable approaches.
