EHko identifier is a grassroot identifier (Participatory Guarantee System) for Agroecology. It Identifies and distinguishes the bio-ecological, autochthonous, farmer and popular farmhouses of Euskal Herria. This identifier is not a label that gives the guarantee of the product, but rather identifies the farms, the production units. In this way, the process guarantees two things: on the one hand, committing oneself to a collective work; and on the other, in addition to respecting the eco-logical regulations of Europe, differentiating itself from the bio-industrial system and ensuring the peasant-citizen relationship. It is a unique pedagogical tool to show the public the practicality of Agroecology.
In 2014 it was decided to create a network of agroecological farms in Euskal Herria and through the exchange of knowledge and the support of the collective. It was an opportunity to do so following the bases of the Participatory Guarantee Systems (see BSP), since instead of ensuring specific food, these systems focus on production projects or farm processes and are based on the active collaboration of the agents involved in the process, specifically the values and tools fully in line with EHkolektiboa's tasks. Today the network is made up of 73 farms that are the mirror of Agroecology before citizens and society.
