The sharing of information and resources with others without expecting a return from those you specifically help, trusting that others in the network will share with you (Network Weaver Handbook). Similar to benefits realized through restoring soil health and resultant "mycorhizzal associations", there is a growing awareness that cultivating social networks based on these type of complex trust-based relationships can also support people and organizations engaged in food systems work.
