Food and Farming Politics

At Vallis Veg, we’re involved politically in the wider movement for sustainable farming, food sovereignty and social justice in the food and farming system. We’re proud to be members of the Land Workers’ Alliance , a new UK organisation campaigning for small and medium scale food producers and for a better food system. The LWA is a member of La Via Campesina, the global peasants’ movement – you can read Chris’s article about ‘peasants’ new and old here.

We’re also involved with the Campaign For Real Farming and its excellent annual Oxford Real Farming Conference, which campaigns for a saner global food and farming system. And we’re members of the Organic Growers’ Alliance, an organisation representing small organic growers (see here for a statement on our organic status). Do also have a look at Chris’s blog, Small Farm Future, for regular reports from the frontline of farming politics!
