Join NOFA-NH For:
Why Organic Now?
Linking Social Justice to Personal and Planetary Health
A Virtual Panel Discussion
Wednesday, November 18, 2020 | 7 - 8:30 PM
NOFA-NH is proud to present “Why Organic Now? Linking Social Justice to Personal and Planetary Health,” a FREE virtual panel discussion followed by a live Q & A.
Humanity’s connection to one another and the planet is deeply rooted in agriculture. Spanning thousands of years across countless generations, farming is a pillar of society, just as food is an essential element of daily life. NOFA-NH believes that everyone has a right to nutritious, local, and culturally appropriate food. NOFA-NH also believes that those who tend to our food - farmers and farm workers - have a fundamental right to fair labor, fair wages, safe working conditions, and access to resources that will enable them to feed their communities. While holding these beliefs, we're equally aware of the many challenges currently facing our food system, including the troubling persistence of food insecurity, injustice, and the environmental crisis affecting our state and nation.
These challenges have highlighted the importance of organic growing and eating as practical steps for countering unfair labor practices, unhealthy and inaccessible food supplies, and climate change. People in New Hampshire and the Northeast are working together to build an equitable food system that strives to improve economic vitality, resilience, biodiversity, and health for all.
We invite you to join us in a virtual discussion with leaders from around the state and region to explore specific ways that localized, organic, regenerative growing and eating can contribute to the repair of unjust social structures, personal health, and the environment that sustains us.
