SESSIONS 17 to 20


A Small Farm Future

with Chris Smaje

As farmers and eaters grapple with supply chain disruption throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the future of food security in a changing climate, the call to transition away from industrialised food and agricultural production has never been louder. So, how do we make the case for building localised food systems based on agroecology and food sovereignty principles?


An eater’s guide to Community Supported Agriculture

roundtable discussion

The constant stream of climate change induced natural disasters, and the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the industrialised food supply chains, has demonstrated the urgent need for localised food economies, short supply chains, and paying a fair price for food. Luckily for us, one of the food sovereignty solutions is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). In this roundtable discussion you will hear from CSA members, and farmers who run a CSA program and learn: What is it? Why is important to food sovereignty? How can you enact food sovereignty by becoming a member of a CSA? What are some of the bumps you may encounter along the way?


Solidarity and Corporate Capture of the UN Food Systems Summit

panel discussion

A panel of food systems advocates, including Tim McCartney (Barengi Gadjin Land Council), Charlie Arnott (Regenerative Journey podcast), Vivien Yii (Right to Food Coalition), Costa (Gardening Australia) and Tammi Jonas (AFSA) with host Alexx Stuart (LowTox Life) to discuss what the UNFSS might mean for First Peoples, small-scale farmers, the food insecure and city folk, and how we can all prevent ongoing corporate capture of our food systems.


Nguuruu Farm

with Murray Prior

How can farmers work to support First Peoples’ sovereignty, build relationships with the Traditional Custodians of the land on which they work, and collaborate to care for country?

We talk to Murray Prior of Nguuruu Farm about their partnership with “Girrawah” Paul House — a Ngambri (Walgalu), Wallabalooa (Ngunnawal) and Wiradjuri (Erambie) custodian in which they work together to heal country and challenge colonial approaches to land.

Through the partnership, Paul and his people have access to country and a parcel of land to manage as they choose, while Nguuruu Farm receive Paul’s guidance in their journey to understand their land.

Building these relationships are key to healing land and the injuries of Australia’s history.
