**The first People’s Harvest Forum was held in December 2015. Check back this summer for information on People’s Harvest Forum 2016.**

The People’s Harvest Forum is a weekend event on working towards food justice and food sovereignty. We will speak about the impacts of agribusiness on the environment, animals and people and discuss ways to build alternatives and reclaim our food systems. This forum is unique in that we will integrate an animal rights perspective in working towards food sovereignty. It will present veganic gardening and farming, setting them at the intersection of food justice and animal rights movements.

This first event will emphasize food struggles in the Bay Area and urban spaces. How can we create and gain ownership of healthy food systems in cities? We will bring the concept of reclaiming the fields to urban spaces: reclaiming the streets and the right of the people to the city is central to building healthy, resilient and autonomous communities.
