Join us for the launch of the Harvest Workers’ Co-op film programme with a very exciting and engaging first film: In Our Hands. The film has been made by the Landworkers’ Alliance to unearth the farms and faces that are transforming the way our food is produced and distributed. Our current industrial food system is a vast and wheezing giant that is only upheld by a stilted subsidy regime that pays out to landowners and leaves many farmers by the wayside.

But from the hedge-rows and by-roads, the fields and furrows can now be heard the stirring of change! Stories from the global South have inspired farmers and food workers in our snug little island, with the idea of food sovereignty and a global movement to take back control of the food system.

From the grazier reviving the art of pasture, to the grower erecting a poly-tunnel in the heart of East London or the farmer saving a handful of ancient grain, a new agricultural landscape is emerging. Here rural traditions meet modern innovations in a new food system that will bring back life to the soil, a fair wage to the farmer and a flavour to the tomato! We stand on the brink, the future is uncertain, but the seeds of a better food system are In Our Hands!

The Harvest Workers Co-op will be serving delicious, seasonal and organic food before the film, and after we will be joined by Ed Hamer (Landworkers Alliance and Chagfood CSA) to discuss the film.
