Agroecology and rural education, linked to sustainable alternatives, have been changing the way of production in different parts of the country, especially in traditional communities. These processes have contributed to orienting farmers in the production process and developing strategies that are able to minimize the environmental impacts generated by conventional agriculture and, at the same time, provide strategies that may be adopted for social development while preserving local biodiversity and sustainable means of production. The objective of this work was to develop activities for young people and adults in a quilombola community, which combine Rural Education and Agroecology through workshops promoted in partnership with the rural school based on alternation pedagogy. The classes were divided into activities between school time and community time, and some workshops were offered with agroecological practices, according to the needs of students who were found in community time. The aroeira quilombola community was willing and willing to change their reality by changing the means of production. Thus, it is necessary to develop new public policies aimed at the field that unite education and agroecology, strengthening the exchange of popular knowledge with technical knowledge, always taking into account the way of life and production already existing in the community, strengthening food sovereignty, agroecological practices and local development.
