Abstract Since the 1960s, modernization en specialisation of agricultural food production caused and still causes a loss in the socio-economic and ecological performance of the rural as a productive natural resource base. From an agro-ecological departure point we study collective forms of food governance as ´laboratories’ in which cultural coherency is co-produced between consumers and producers. More in particular, we analyse how initiatives of both producers and consumers contribute on the re-organisation of the relations between nature and society. In this paper we present the preliminary results of a survey held among newly emerging consumer initiatives in Spain. In our analysis we focus on their socio-ecological and economic 'configuration' and asses the impact of these forms of civic engagement on farming systems and the wider food system. Finally we do suggestions on how cultural components within the new food networks could guide the improvement of socio-economic and ecological performance of food systems more in general.
