To celebrate five years of #IGrowYourFood, we partnered with the Intercontinental Network of Organic Farmers Organisations (INOFO) to host a live stream discussion on 14 September 2023 at 13:00 CEST titled “Nourishing the world in times of crises - Farming and food production for the future”.
Thales Mendonça moderated the discussion alongside three organic farmers who were the panellists: Julitza Nieves, Hans Bartelme, and Bibong Widyarti. They discussed, shared their experiences, and also responded to questions from the audience.
We also curated video messages from organic and agroecological farmers worldwide that you can share all year round.
Watch the discussion here!
Celebrating five years of #IGrowYourFood
This year on 14 September, marked five years of #IGrowYourFood, the first global action day celebrating the people who sustainably grow our food. Since 2019, we have provided a platform for hundreds of farmers to share their experiences and challenges, and exchange with their counterparts from all over the world.
During this time, organic and agroecological farmers and advocates have taken to social media to share the challenges farmers face, how we can support them, and why they choose organic. This year was no different!
Drawing inspiration from our principles of organic agriculture, global action day was the perfect opportunity for everyone to unite and listen to the voices of the phenomenal farmers growing our food.
Supporting sustainable agriculture and food production like organics is one of the most important interventions we can make for our world’s future.Organic farmer & Ireland’s Minister for Land Use & Biodiversity
Let us continue to celebrate the farmers who produce our food in harmony with nature!
I could watch these all morning. I realise my tribe is all over the planet. They all look different, speak different languages but they say the same thing.
