We Feed the World

Did you know that 70% of the world's population is fed by small family farmers!!! Yes it is an important truth!

'We Feed the World' is a global photographic project which celebrates and raises awareness about the role of the small, family farmers and their success in feeding 70 percent of the world's population.

It brings together, for the first time ever, a collaboration of over 30 award-winning photographers to take a series of portraits of the men and women who work with nature - not against it - to grow food for their families, their communities and for us.

Almost Good Bye: Any stories??

Hello all of you who ever had anything to do with us here at FOOD from the SKY . We are creating the possibility of creating a celebratory film/document of the last 4 years of this wonderful initiative!

As you know FOOD from the SKY is closing down end of March. Part of its assets will go to 2 London growing sites the Meadow and Keats CO ( more in its own post very soon!) the rest will be dissolved…
Like for every death there is a natural impulse to want to celebrate the Life that has taken place and now is that time here at FOOD from the SKY. Like we need your STORIES for a finale feature of the last 4 years. In death the Celebration of what was is of great importance…
SO we’d like to create a short sum up of the last 4 years as a film and a PDF document ? Can you share some of your experience with us that we can then use and feel a little better about the closing
How you know FOOD from the SKY?
How you have been touched, moved and inspired by FOOD from the SKY?
What did you give and receive from FOOD from the SKY?
Has it had a positive impact on your life in anyway and how?
Anything else, like photos, anecdotes, stories etc…
Your name if you want.
The date for this to arrive to us is by 4th April please send to [email protected], answer as a comment or call me 077765257517. It does not need to be long but it would help to make meaning of these changing times!
Many thanks, Azul-Valerie Thome

We still have a full skip today (Friday) so won't be working on the ffts roof. Thanks to everyone that was going to come up and help us out today but the work day is CANCELLED. Next clearing day is Tuesday 18th March. Please come and help if you can - our deadline is nearing and the hold up with the skip has lost us time.
