Veganic Farming: A Growing Movement for a Better World

Nassim Nobari

Nassim will share how our corporate food system is at the root of pressing environmental problems and a strong global movement for sustainable food systems has sprung in response. Unfortunately, the food movement tends to promote small-scale animal agriculture and alternatives are not readily explored. Nassim will shed some light on the historical and cultural reasons for this predilection for animal agriculture and its ramifications for our environment. She will present veganic farming as a more sustainable and compassionate way of growing food and share ways that we can all help build a veganic food system.

Nassim Nobari is the co-founder of Seed the Commons and the coordinator of the Working Group on Veganic Farming. As a social justice and food sovereignty activist, she has worked with radical community programs in Switzerland and the US and volunteered with Via Campesina in a dozen countries. With Seed the Commons, she strives to continue to help build a food system that works for farmers, workers and eaters, while promoting animal liberation instead of agricultural models based on animal exploitation.
