With nearly 80% of the UK population living in an urban environment the Food Sovereignty Movement UK and the Community Food Growers Network will explore how we can build community-controlled land and food systems in the UK, and if this is even possible in cities.

Showing short film clips from global food struggles and presentations from UK urban food projects, the workshop will focus on the questions:

 ‘What is food sovereignty?’

‘Where are we now?’

‘Where do we want to go next and how do we get there?’

‘What skills and resources do we have in the room?’

 The workshop will end with a Seed Swap where participants can collect and share seeds to take away and sow.
