“We Are Farmers, We Grow Food For The People”

“On December 4, 2011, farmers and activists from across the country joined the Occupy Wall Street Farmers March for ‘a celebration of community power to regain control over the most basic element to human well-being: food.’”

The Farmers’ March began at La Plaza Cultural Community Gardens where urban and rural farmers addressed an excited crowd about the growing problems in our industrial food system and the promise offered by solutions based in organic, sustainable and community based food and agricultural production. This was followed by a 3-mile march from the East Village to Zuccotti Park, the birthplace of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

This is what happens when farmers join with their urban allies – Together we are Unstoppable! Please join the movement and spread the word!

  1. This makes me so happy. I live in Harrisonburg, Virginia where there are lots of farms and local places to buy food. I’m so glad that the movement for sustainable food is moving forward. Another win for foodies and farmers!
