Groundswell International

Groundswell International strengthens the capacity of people, communities and farmers’ organizations to create healthy farming and food systems from the ground up.

Groundswell International works with smallholder farmers – prioritizing marginalized women – to address the root causes of food insecurity, environmental degradation, climate change, and social and economic vulnerability. Their approach catalyzes a virtuous cycle of regeneration and growth, reversing the downward spiral of poverty and vulnerability.

  • Groundswell supports farmers’ groups through a practical “learning by doing” approach. Farmers test ecological farming principles and practices, adopting those that work best on their farms.
  • They then spread these approaches through farmer-to-farmer learning networks.
  • As farmers can reliably grow more of their own food, Groundswell supports them to create stronger local markets and improve their incomes.
  • To ensure gains on the ground are sustained and grow, we work with allies to create an enabling policy context.
