About the Book
Australia's food system is more than just broken - it's killing us. Now is the time to act, to make a difference - to change the world. The groundbreaking Fair Food: Inspiring Stories of Ethical Living tells the new story of food - the story of how food and farming in Australia are dramatically transforming at the grassroots to match the transition of our times: towards reconnection, towards healing - of the land, of each other. It offers a compelling and coherent vision of how our future can be different from our present and our past, and how each of us can make a difference. Told through the eyes and lives of several of the leading figures in the unfolding action that is Australia's 'fair food' movement, this book tells the stories of innovation, from local food hubs and the GE - free movements to open - source software code, community - shared and urban agriculture, radical transparency, ethics of scale, backyard food - forests and regenerative agriculture. In a time of bullying corporations, supermarket monopolies and environmental degradation, Fair Food offers compelling and inspiring stories of personal transformation from 'ordinary' people, showing us that we too can be powerful agents of change in this time of need. Contributors include Robert Pekin, Fran Murrell, Tammi Jonas, Charles Massy, Cat Green, Angelo Eliades, Michael Croft, Emma Kate Rose and Kirsten Larsen. Forewords by David Pocock and Guy Grossi.
