Hopefulness... We all need a bit of that, in a world that seems hell bent upon destroying itself, one way or another..
Lady Farm Hack is just one reason to be cheerful, happening for the third year running here at Hoppins Field in August.. A skill sharing act of feminine farm working solidarity.. And so much more (cake) besides.. Properly known as the Women's Farmworking Weekend (but who said we had to be proper, I don't know??)... It's a foc self organised event, open to women, and femme identifying, land workers and food activists... 🙏🌱❤️When I first proposed Lady Hack, rather out of nowhere three years ago, I was a bit nervous about even vocalising the idea.. Surely we don't need single gendered events like this in our (supposedly) equal modern age.. But the response _ particularly from younger women, was overwhelming positive, as have been the outcomes, that's why we're doing it again.. ..
If you are involved in practical agroecology, or food sovereignty issues, and would like to be involved, then message me here, and we can let you know more details, dates etc.
We would love for this to become a model to be taken countrywide, the appetite is keen for deeper knowledge, practical skills, and support, how to work together, how to work differently, practical actions we can take towards a fairer food system, that doesn't hack the planet to pieces, in the process. 🙏🌏❤️💜🌍👣
