Veganic Farming: A Growing Movement for a Better World
Nassim will share how to create a food system that is better for people, the animals and the planet, by building the movement for veganic farming and gardening. Veganic means farming without animal inputs (manure, blood and bone meal, etc.) Our corporate food system is at the root of many of today’s pressing social justice and environmental problems, and a strong global movement for small-scale, sustainable food systems has sprung in response. Nassim will discuss what veganic means, the importance of building a veganic movement, how vegans can help create this vision, and easy ways we can all get involved.
