Food isn’t just what we eat, it connects us to our family, our community and the world around us.
We live in a challenging time in history, facing unprecedented global crises, and yet, local food initiatives by small farmers, community workers, and activists offer solutions to these large complex problems.
Local food and strong community networks can provide alternatives to this destructive system, as well as many wider benefits for society and the environment. This book shows alternative food networks, food sovereignty, and social economics, through case-studies or real people and communities in both urban and rural New Zealand, as well as a global lens.
These inspiring stories and helpful insights provide a compass that can help us to navigate towards a more equitable and sustainable future.
We have two copies of Food, Freedom, Community by Isla Pearl Ritchie to give away. Go in to the draw below.
