Support Us

Support our union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers to build a future where everybody can access local, healthy, affordable food, fuel and fibre from producers they can trust.

We need our farmers three times a day.
Support a future for smaller and family farms!

You don’t have to be a farmer or land-worker to recognise that small to medium scale agroecological farms and land management are crucial to the sustainability of our environment and food system.
They provide opportunities to connect with our food and each other; they care about providing affordable, good quality food to their communities; they strive to improve land and landscapes, so that we may improve our world for future generations; they are core part of the solutions to the issues of rural unemployment, food poverty, climate chaos and biodiversity collapse.
While the membership of the Landworkers’ Alliance union is restricted to farmers, growers foresters and land-based workers, we invite everyone to join the LWA as a supporter.
By supporting our work you’ll be adding your voice to the movement and bringing more power to our messages. You’ll help us to run more trainings and events and we’ll be able to continue lobbying and campaigning for the issues that matter.
Benefits of being a Supporter:
Regular updates with our news, events, trainings and more
Exclusive or reduced price access to LWA courses and events on agroecology, political change and movement building
Opportunities to participate in lobbying, campaigning and marches
The knowledge that your money is going directly towards building a future where everybody can access local, healthy, affordable food, fuel and fibre from producers they can trust
  • “The Landworkers' Alliance is a key actor in the movement advocating a socially just and ecologically sustainable food system, both within the UK and beyond. As part of Via Campesina and the international food sovereignty movement, the LWA has played a very significant role in putting food sovereignty on the agenda in the UK, in stimulating the emergence of the UK food sovereignty movement, and in thinking through what the implementation of food sovereignty principles might look like in a UK context.”
    LWA Supporter, London
  • “I think a lot about what kind of world my grandchildren will live in. What access to land they will have, what food they will eat and whether they will be able to experience a certain level of joy and wellbeing in their lives...Small scale farming and diverse economic systems must be included as fundamental components of any solution to the emerging food crisis. The Landworkers Alliance are key in this, offering very real, alternative agroecological solutions to the serious problem of what we are going to eat over the coming century.”
    LWA Supporter, Cumbria
