Hey mates! Confused about how you can help support farmers? How you can navigate all the food available to understand if you are supporting inclusive and valuable food systems and people?
The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) crew have been working tirelessly on a stack of stuff, most notably a BOOK - called Farming Democracy, which highlights a number of small-scale, agroecological Australian farmers whose stories we want to share - these are people who are working towards a more ethical, more accessible and more transparent food system that considers the need for land, health and rural community restoration. They’ll tell you how hard this kind of farming is, but also how enjoyable it is, share with you the economic reality of producing food that is beneficial on multiple levels (hint: not many people are making much money or even face economic marginalisation), and illustrate the critical need to support these kinds of farmers.
SO ONE WAY TO PHYSICALLY SUPPORT THEM VIA OUR WORK IS TO MAKE A PLEDGE TO OUR POZIBLE CAMPAIGN!!!
We need your support to get to our publishing goal by mid-December! You can pledge support only, or be gifted a copy of the book, as well as a ticket to our other big event - FARM DAY OUT 2019! WHAT AN AMAZING PERSON YOU’LL BE FOR ALREADY HAVING ORGANISED YOUR XMAS GIFTS!!!
Also consider joining AFSA if you are not already a member - our work is a labour of love and we are totally member-funded. It’s SO affordable to contribute to our work, so please consider doing so.
We KNOW you all care about SUPPORTING SMALL-SCALE AUSTRALIAN FARMERS - avoid by crap this Xmas and buy something that contributes to a better Australian food system! Happy holiday season!!
