International Permaculture Day is a day to celebrate the important work being done by so many involved in the global Permaculture movement. This year’s theme is ‘Reclaiming Food Freedom’ and here’s a summary from the website.

‘Everywhere new laws are being passed, supposedly for our benefit, which limit our right to healthy, nutritious food; from raw milk bans, to hidden GMOs, to the criminalising of seed saving; the reality is that our once universal right is being robbed for corporate profit. And not only is our health and food sovereignty at stake as the food supply concentrates into fewer hands, but so is our food security, the environment and the livelihoods of countless farmers. We must reclaim our Food Freedom whilst we still can. Join our worldwide call on Sunday 4th May and organise an event or action.’

Happy Happy Permaculture Day!
