Guerilla FAF: Planting Food Autonomy

June 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Dear friends, activists and comrades,

The yearly Food Autonomy Festival has been cancelled for now due to the Covid-19. But, that is not stopping us from taking action for food autonomy!

The 6th of June we are hosting FAF – Homemade https://www.facebook.com/events/613834989483694/. The day after, Sunday the 7th of June, we invite you to take part in this action here. And you can do it wherever you are in the world!!!

Food autonomy is all about reclaiming the right to grow food for yourself and your community. Nowadays, food production has been put into the hands of large corporations and in cities not much space is left for food to be grown. This is why on Sunday the 7th of June we will be planting seeds and seedlings to reclaim our cities and streets as places of food cultivation.

A part of the action would be for you to create a sign that you can plant with the seeds/seedlings. On the sign you can write what food autonomy means to you and/or why you have planted that specific crop. Then take pictures and share with us what you planted – We want to see those curb grown pumpkins!

Please share your pictures under the hashtags #GuerrillaFAF, #PlantingFoodAutonomy and #foodsovereignty, so we can easily see and gather together all your efforts!

What to plant? Seeds and seedlings. Maybe you already grew some bean sprouts. Or you have some sunflower seeds lying around – now is the time to get them going.
You can sprout potatoes, regrow scallions in your window or almost whatever kind of vegetable you have in your fridge.

So, grab your seedlings and join us in planting food autonomy. #resistanceisfertile

Do you feel insecure on how to do this? Don’t worry! In the coming days we will post more information on how to do guerrilla gardening and why it is a tool in the fight for food autonomy. Stay tuned.

When: Sunday the 7th of June 11 am (CEST)
Where: Everywhere
