Growing Change, A journey inside Venezuela’s food revolution
Thursday 29 November, 7pm at the Hornbeam Centre
A film followed by discussion with supporting speakers from the World Development Movement and Organiclea. The film, by Simon Cunich shows how in Venezuela, from fishing villages to cacao plantations to urban gardens, a growing social movement is showing what’s possible when communities, not corporations, start to take control of food. Growing Change takes us through a new food system as it’s being constructed almost from scratch – meeting farmers who are gaining access to land for the first time and working in cooperatives to break the country’s reliance on imports.
