We are a union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food and land-use system for everyone.
We work for a future where producers can work with dignity to earn a decent living and everyone can access local, healthy and affordable food, fuel and fibre – a food and land-use system based on agroecology and food sovereignty that furthers social and environmental justice.
What’s the issue: The Agriculture Bill is currently being debated in Parliament, and will set the course of our farming system for many generations. The Bill as it stands does much to protect the environment, but we believe the Bill should do more to protect our farmers and support our supply of healthy, home grown food.
What are we doing: We’ve been lobbying and campaigning for amendments that will protect our farmers from being undercut by low standard trade imports and support a transition to agroecological farming with R&D, training, and financial incentives. We have also been campaigning against amendments that will support genome editing and genetic modification being added to the bill.
Join the Land Workers Alliance - They do amazing things and I can't imagine them not existing...Political lobbying, sharing knowledge and skills, meeting others, having fun and lastly solidarity and action!!
