In Our Hands 2Food and farming is in crisis. In just over a decade we’ve lost more than 33,000 farms from our countryside, and alongside this, bad diet is now causing serious health problems.The fundamental link between people, food and the very land we stand on is being broken, but there is now a growing movement of farmers and food workers who are creating vibrant farms, living soils, thriving food markets and a fairer food system for all.

In Our Hands is the story of a new kind of farm, a new kind of food and a new kind of society. This film has been created as an open source tool for farmers and activists alike, who want to build a new food system on the ashes of the old.

Local interest: the film features several members of the Organiclea workers’ food growing cooperative, seeding change in Waltham Forest since 2001, and partnering with Transition Leytonstone on the Saturday Local Produce Stall since 2011. Organiclea workers Darren Springer and Shannon Thaden will be on the Q&A panel afterwards, along with RoseMary Warrington and Diana Korchien from Transition Leytonstone.

The film starts at 7pm, doors will open at 6:45pm. Tickets at £3.50 are bookable on Eventbrite.
