Food Creation and Democracy
Thursday, October 13, 2011
5:30-9:00 pm

Everyone is welcome! Kids too!

Where: Peace Resource Center in the Friends Center building,
3850 Westgate Place, San Diego 92105

5:30-6:30    Potluck and Garden tour
Connect with community, tour the Peace Garden project, and enjoy tasty dishes!
We suggest you bring food to share, a plate & utensils. If you're unable, please just bring yourself — we prefer that you still attend & share YOU.

6:30-7:30    San Diego's Urban Ag Proposal
This is an outreach meeting about about the City's proposed regulation changes.
We want your opinion! We will give an overview of Com- munity Gardens and Urban Agriculture in San Diego, a description of the proposed changes (Retail Farm, Farmers Markets and Stands, Chickens, Goats, etc), as well as ask for your comments and give some Next Steps for voicing your thoughts and getting involved.

7:30-9:00    "... and the echo follows"
Author/photographer Nic Paget-Clarke will present his new book "... and the echo follows" The presentation includes a talk with photos and discussion.

What the book is about:

Asking the question, "What is the connection between food and democracy?" raises a lot of other questions. Some of the answers invalidate many of the myths of our assumed knowl- edge. Other answers describe the history and experience of a different understanding.

What is the Green Revolution? What is food sovereignty? What is the verticalization of agriculture? What is agroecol- ogy? Is "free trade" free? Where did this economic mess come from? Is a democracy a vote for who? Is land identity? What has art got to do with it? Do I care?

Surprising to some, well-understood by others, many of the answers are available for both discussion and practice. Mil- lions of women and men, farmers, indigenous people, and peasants are creating autonomous movements with self- sustaining social and economic relations.

They are movements, people of dignity.
