Mae-Wan's model diagram of a Dream Farm. She wants working Dream Farms are established around the world as sites for education and research.
The solutions to the food crisis and the threat of catastrophic climate change are there, but they will have to be fought for. Because the interlocked forces of state power, transnational food corporations and industrial agro-capitalists will resist any change that challenges their control of food production. A broad left party in Aotearoa, such as RAM is becoming the foundation for, can give leadership to the struggle for a necessary structural change in the way we produce food. Organic and localised food production using sustainable technologies (solar, wind, anaerobic digestion of wastes) at the point of production must be part of the vision of a broad based social and environmental movement of the 21st century. We need to translate the ideas being put forward by scientists like Mae-Wan into a sound social and ecological framework for Aotearoa.
