Food Sovereignty
We came together at the Assembly through our shared understanding that we have a crisis-ridden corporate and globalised food system that is responsible for worsening social, health and climate challenges, and which is coinciding with increasing state failure in relation to regulating our food regime and ensuring much needed agrarian transformation. Climate shocks are already impacting negatively on our food system with volatile food prices, droughts, heavy rainfall and flooding. This necessitates advancing food sovereignty to ensure our food and water needs are not compromised and ordinary citizens have the means to meet food production and consumption needs on their terms in the midst of the climate crisis.

Please come and pour your heart energy into this beautiful project.

Some of the things that are happening this weekend, and on an ongoing basis, are:
Digging beds
Building a wendy house
Planting vegetables, medicinal plants, flowers, trees, bamboo
Making a pond
Making music together
Eating good food

Please bring what you have:
Tools - for building and gardening
Building materials for wendy house - wooden pallets, poles, etc.
