This study presents an analysis on the women's group from Quilombo Ribeirão Grande and Terra Seca, located in Vale do Ribeira, São Paulo, Brazil.It focuses on agroecological practices that ensure biodiversity and financial autonomy, and food for the women's family, as well as the preservation of nature based on their tradition, that has deep foundations in their ancestry. As the selected methodologies were based on the women's existences, they were the central point of discussion, moving beyond the analyses about social organization and domestic labor, pinpointing their agricultural practices. In this sense, this research intends to expand knowledge construction in the agroecological context as it is a science-practice-movement. It also proposes to observe gender and race issues, socio-environmental and agronomic methods as coexisting processes. The dialog between these theories needs to become self-aware through interdisciplinary exchanges, so that women can be seen as political subjects in agroecology.
