This winter, join other NOFA-NH members for an online 5 part book discussion of "Who Really Feeds the World?" by Vandana Shiva, every other Thursday from January 14 to March 11, 7:30-9:00 p.m.
Many proponents of ecological food growing methods are regularly challenged with the statement: “Organic might be nice but it can't feed the world!” Come learn the facts about who is feeding the world and the reasons why industrial agriculture fails to do so.
More about the book: Who Really Feeds the World? is a powerful manifesto calling for agricultural justice and sustainability, drawing upon Shiva’s thirty years in the field. Instead of relying on genetic modification and large-scale monocropping to solve the world’s food crisis, she proposes that we look to agroecology—the knowledge of the interconnectedness that creates food—as a truly life-giving alternative to the industrial paradigm. Shiva lays out the networks of people and processes that feed the world, exploring issues of diversity, the needs of small famers, the importance of seed saving, the movement toward localization, and the role of women in producing the world’s food.
