Growhampton 10th Birthday: Racial Justice in the Food Sector Talks

Hive Cafe, Digby Campus

From £5.00

University of Roehampton
An evening of talks on racial justice in the food sector as part of Black History Month with food provided! (£5 deposit required to book your space)

Join us for a special evening of talks and discussion at the Hive cafe on Wednesday 4th October, where in the backdrop of Black History Month we'll be welcoming food grower and writer Claire Ratinon, and the people behind the 'Seeding Reparations' campaign to discuss racial justice in the food sector.

Food grower and writer, Claire Ratinon will share her journey into land work in conversation with Growhampton's Ellie Paganini. This session will explore themes that run through her book, ‘Unearthed: On Race and Roots, and How the Soil Taught Me I Belong’ including the politics of working the land, diasporic belonging, and how the legacy of colonialism permeates through horticulture, botany, agriculture and into the unfolding climate crisis. 

After this, the team from Seeding Reparations will discuss how white supremacy has shaped our food system and how addressing this legacy will prove central to sustaining the living earth and its peoples.

There will be opportunties for questions from the audience also.

A seasonal vegan soup with bread will be provided free of charge to those in attendance.

Event is free but £5 deposit required to book your space. This will be refunded to you after the event!
