A collaboration between artist Frances Whitfield and ecological grower Poppy Okotcha.
This illustrated calendar spotlights the growing, preparing and sharing of food as a radical act that reconnects us to the natural world and to each other while addressing the climate justice emergency.
Fact: How we feed ourselves, from farming to distribution makes up about 1/4th of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
What you get:
Month by month you will be given:
- an exercise or idea to help start the revolution at home,
- a plant based recipe,
- some guidance on what to get up to in the garden
- and what’s in season to forage.
The strategies range from how to grow our own ecologically to cooking with compassion.
The actions shared have been empirically shown to reduce carbon, taking us one step closer to Drawdown*, while shifting our cultural mindsets in relation to the Earth and one another, fostering community and resilience.
Note: This calendar contains seasonal tasks relevant to the UK.
*Drawdown is when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have stopped rising and are instead declining.
