In Our Hands – A Film by the Land Worker’ Alliance

In Our Hands explores a quiet revolution that is transforming the way our food is produced and distributed. Our current industrial food system is a vast and wheezing giant that is only upheld by a stilted subsidy regime that pays out to landowners and leaves many farmers by the wayside.

But from the hedge-rows and by-roads, the fields and furrows can now be heard the stirring of change! Stories from the global South have inspired farmers and food workers in our snug little island, with the idea of food sovereignty and a global movement to take back control of the food system.

The film will be introduced by Ed Hamer from the Landworkers Alliance and a featured grower in the film

Pricing We have tried to keep prices as affordable as we can whilst ensuring that everyone is paid a fair rate for their work. Most activities feature a reduced rate thanks to the kind support of Okehampton United Charities. If you can't afford the full rate please buy a ticket at the reduced rate. Do get in touch if cost is a problem.

Access We are running minibus transport from Okehampton to out of town locations. Let us know if you would like to use this.

We do hope you enjoy what we are doing and if you are interested in a food and farming activity and can't see it here just let us know and we'll see what we can do.

A very Big Thanks to Okehampton United Charities for supporting this programme.
