Welcome to our weekly update! We’re now in the middle of May and first of all hope that you are well! At Nangu, we currently work fully distributed with Francisco based in Costa Rica, Ruben in France and Nikolai in The Netherlands. Because of Covid, there are things we can not currently do, like exploring potential plots of land. At the same time, it allows us to focus on other areas in our journey towards the first Nangu village, like defining our governance model. In short, we’re adapting to the current reality.
Navdanya is an Indian organization that promotes seed diversity conservation, ecological farming and fair trade. They have established a network of almost 3 million farmers across India and a world reputation for standing against biotech giants and GMO seeds.
The world is on the brink of climatic catastrophe. The industrial food system is undermining our very subsistence by cutting forests, degrading arable land and poisoning the water. Fortunately there is a way to revert the damage, regenerate our forests, produce healthy food and care for the people.
