Final report

My final report entitled “Lessons in resilience from social justice focused farming in the US” can be downloaded here. My learnings are grouped around the themes of:

  1. Making change through employment
  2. Attending to power within our organisations
  3. Creating leaders for the future
  4. Storytelling to uphold the past, and amplify in the present
  5. Bringing together food access and sustainable livelihoods
  6. Funding social justice work
  7. Attending to systemic oppression and being overt in our politics

My hope is that gathering these lessons in this report will inspire both conversation and action here in the UK. I strongly feel that applying these ideas will contribute towards increasing the resilience of UK movements for small-scale agro-ecological farming and community-led food systems, our food systems and wider society.
