It does take a village. In our case the global village and our hometown.
Friends in Ojai have come together to organize a Kickstarter launch party at The Farmer & The Cook on Thursday August 20. Supported mostly by volunteers and donations, anticipate a local, organic and most excellent party. If you are in Ojai (or thereabouts) and on Facebook you can learn more and RSVP on this event page, otherwise feel free to email us here.
With all good wishes and hopes that we meet our goal!
And we’ve been networking! From scientists, to farmers, to activists, to chefs, we’ve connected with many brilliant people working towards just and ecological food systems for all.
The problem is that government-supported Big Ag and Big Food have limitless public relations resources, putting agro-ecologists at a disadvantage. This is especially true in the developing world where there is relentless marketing of GMOs and widespread occurrence of corporate land grabs.
We’ve forged over fifty alliances already, including with Seed Freedom, African Biodiversity Network, Center for Food Safety, Edible Communities, Global GMO Free Coalition, The Greenhorns, Rodale Institute, Soil not Oil Coalition and Seed Savers Exchange. With our newly minted promotional reel, we’ll be reaching out to a list of more than 150 additional organizations across the globe.
