Random Food for Thought

Women’s farmer collective in Sangju send out organic vegetable boxes to nearby consumers once a week. The women farm and process individually and collectively. Two men have been allowed to join the collective, but on the condition that they can not participate in decisionmaking. The women also work to protect native seed heritage from corporate takeover. The Korean Womens Peasant Association (KWPA) received the 2013 Food Sovereignty Prize because of projects like these and in recognition of their decades long struggle for democracy and women’s rights in South Korea.
