Employing an interdisciplinary and multifaceted approach, this book explores how communities all over the country are actively engaged in implementing alternative agricultural and food models within the framework of food sovereignty: taking control of food-producing resources, markets, and agricultural policy. This reference offers the opportunity to build alternative agricultural and food models that are less environmentally damaging and that keep farmers on the land while ensuring that those living in cities have access to healthy and safe food. Acknowledging that achieving food sovereignty requires conceptual and practical changes, reshaping menus, farming, communities, relationships, values, and policy, it is clearly demonstrated how the urgent work of building food sovereignty is well under way. Through case studies of practical action, an analysis is provided of indigenous food sovereignty, orderly marketing, community gardens, the political engagement of nutritionists, experiences with urban agriculture, and the strengthening of links between rural and urban communities. Policy-related challenges to building community-based agriculture and food systems that are ecologically sustainable and socially just are also highlighted.

Book Description Fernwood Publishing Co Ltd, Canada, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Contemporary Canadian agricultural and food policies are contributing to the current global food crisis: the industrialized, high-input, export-driven agricultural production sector, coupled with concentrated corporate processing and retailing, are ecologically unsustainable, increasingly unaffordable, unhealthy and socially unjust. Employing an interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral approach, Food Sovereignty in Canada explores how communities all over the country are actively engaged in implementing alternative agricultural and food models within the framework of food sovereignty taking control over food-producing resources, markets and agricultural policy. This framework offers Canadian citizens, researchers and policymakers the opportunity to build alternative agricultural and food models that are less environmentally damaging and that keep farmers on the land while ensuring that those living in cities have access to healthy and safe food. Achieving food sovereignty requires conceptual and practical changes, reshaping menus, farming, communities, relationships, values and policy, but, as the authors clearly demonstrate, the urgent work of building food sovereignty in Canada is well under way. In case studies of practical action, Food Sovereignty in Canada provides an analysis of indigenous food sovereignty, orderly marketing, community gardens, the political engagement of nutritionists, experiences with urban agriculture and the strengthening of links between rural and urban communities. It also highlights policy-related challenges to building community-based agriculture and food systems that are ecologically sustainable and socially just. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in holistic, healthy and sustainable food production and consumption. Seller Inventory # AAO9781552664438
