Food Sovereignty

“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples, communities and countries to define their own policies regarding their seeds, agriculture, labor, food and land. These policies must be appropriate to their unique ecological, social, economic and cultural circumstances. Food Sovereignty includes the true right to food and to produce food. It has grown into a powerful movement that will lead to more just and ecological food and farming systems, new democratic decision-making in governments and new international market cooperation aimed at fair prices for farmers.” http://whyhunger.org/portfolio?topicId=16 The interaction between food production and care of the planet is the central focus on agroecology. It is also the interaction between producers and consumers, reducing the distance from the garden to the table; fresh food coming from local producers with much less environmental footprint.
