Land for Life - Food For Thought and Action Tour - Eva Perroni

Last year I had the privilege of engaging in an evening of provocative and deeply moving discussion about land, identity and spirituality hosted by Hepburn Relocalisation Network in Daylesford, Victoria, as part of the Food For Thought and Action Tour.
With guest speakers Tammi Jonas of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance, Jaara country speaker and activator Rebecca Phillips, permaculture co-originator and author David Holmgren (author of RetroSuburbia) and US food movement scholar-activist Eric Holt-Gimenez (former Executive Director of Food First) offering insights into how to develop a deep engagement and long-term commitment to regenerative and just land economies.
Through the format of a talking circle, indigenous and non-indigenous communities came together for an evening of sharing food and personal stories to discuss a key theme: What does land mean to them? And, how does it invoke notions of identity, culture and connection?
