Title:A Case Study of Farmers Joining Together to Create Change: Perceptions and Experiences of Agricultural Guild Leaders and Members
Author(s):Frerichs, Rita Lorene
Doctoral Committee Chair(s):Andrew Sofranko
Department / Program:Human and Community Development
Discipline:Human and Community Development
Degree Granting Institution:University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Subject(s):Economics, Agricultural
Abstract:Implications of the findings are discussed for two major areas of concern. The first is an understanding of how some of the farmers' basic problems were addressed in creating a network that would provide them with information and greater leverage in securing new market opportunities and higher income; and second, for sustaining Guild membership over the next decade or so. Express, overall concern is with gaining a clearer, more in-depth understanding of how contemporary farmers, from their embedded position in the local landscape, are working their way into global production chains.
