Forward to the land: A conversation with European Peasant Farmers.
A conversation with European Peasant Farmers: Attila Szocs, Jolke de Moel and Samson Hart.
There are threats of land grabbing by large transnational companies and investors. Farmland is converted to other uses (infrastructure, energy projects, urban sprawl for example.). More generally, market forces make it very difficult to make a living as a small, independent operator who wants to produce food locally rather than for the world market in an ecological way.
In this episode, we get to hear inspiring stories from those who are farming in order to support life sustaining economies in line with principles of agroecology, food sovereignty, and community supported agriculture. Our host for this episode, Sylvia Kay, speaks to our guests, Attila Szocs, Jolke de Moel and Samson Hart.
