ACA (Asociacion Communitaria de Auto Suficiencia A.C.)

Family Farm

ACÁ (Asociación Communitaria de Auto Suficiencia A.C.) is a non-profit agricultural education association located in Jalisco, Mexico. Our mission is to assist local communities in developing sustainable resource management and self-sufficiency, while improving the health of our environment and communities. Our Eco-training Center facility is open to the public, with tours, workshops, and courses that provide hands on experience in a wide-range of agricultural and community issues.

The Eco-training Center houses: • A beautiful, five-acre organic farm where we cultivate herbs, vegetables, and fruits. • A small Co-op Country style market, where we sell our produce, herbs, natural products, and a wide-selection of plants and ground covers. • A plant nursery which specializes in perennials, ground covers, native Mexican shrubs and exotic trees. • A small animal husbandry model.

ACÁ trainers work in the local community to develop community and school gardens, as well as teaching workshops on organic and agricultural issues. We are currently working with local farmers and agencies in the effort to develop organic standards for the state of Jalisco.
