In Our Hands – Seeding Change
Reading International Solidarity Centre, 35-39 London Street, Reading RG1 4PS

Presented by Reading Food Growing Network, Transition Town Reading and World Film Club

This film shows the inspiring story behind the blood, sweat and tears of nine British farmers seizing the Brexit moment to outgrow an outdated industrial food system. It explores their daily reality and refusal to be ground down by the machinery of big agribusiness and reveals the wisdom of the old and the innovations of the young, who are bringing back the worm to the soil, the ‘culture’ to ‘agriculture,’ and the flavour to the tomato!  Followed by discussion.

Suggested donation:  £3
