The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is a farmer-led civil society organisation of people working together towards socially-just and ecologically-sound food and agriculture systems that foster the democratic participation of Indigenous Peoples, smallholders, and local communities in decision making processes.
Farming Democracy: Radically Transforming the Food System from the Ground Up
Farming Democracy tells the story of 8 diverse Australian small-scale farms doing things differently, working for a ‘new normal’ in agriculture that is fair to soil, water, animals, and people. These farmers are building regenerative, agroecological systems that are viable in an epoch that has seen a sharp decline in the number of farms globally. For veteran growers, aspiring farmers, and everyone who wants to know more about growing alternatives to the industrialised food system.
