Background/Question/Methods Scholars understand agroecology as a science, a practice, and a social movement and recognize its transdisciplinary and transformative significance. The connection of the social sciences and agroecology is essential to improve our understanding of the complex dynamics that exist within the agrifood system. This case study is based on in-depth interviews with Mexican migrant farmworker women in North Carolina. My work looks at how they resist intersectional oppression –as racialized women, low-wage workers, and immigrants— through their everyday food and agricultural practices. Results/Conclusions Participants discussed three specific ways in which they engage their agricultural knowledge and practice with everyday acts of resistance 1) having agricultural knowledge acquired through practical experience in their indigenous peasant communities, 2) growing food in patches of land in their homes, and 3) having skills like recognizing chili varieties and the specific care they require. The agricultural knowledge and practices of migrant farmworkers in the US, and the ways they use them to resist an unjust agrifood system, show how agroecology is undeniably related to social analyses of intersectional oppression.
