Australia's food system is more than just broken: it's killing us. Now is the time to act, to make a difference - to change the world.

The groundbreaking Fair Food tells the new story of food: how food and farming in Australia are dramatically transforming at the grassroots level towards reconnection, towards healing - of the land, of each other. It offers a compelling and coherent vision of how our future can be so much better than our present and our past, and how each of us can make a difference.

Told through the experiences of several of the leading figures in Australia's Fair Food movement, this book tells stories of personal change, courage, innovation and food activism, from local food hubs and backyard food forests, to the GE-free movement, urban farming, radical homemaking and regenerative agriculture.

In a time of bullying corporations, supermarket monopolies and environmental degradation, Fair Food offers compelling and inspiring stories of personal transformation from everyday people, showing us that we, too, can be powerful agents of change in this time of need.

Edited by Fair Food pioneer Nick Rose, and with forewords by David Pocock and Guy Grossi, contributors include Michael Croft, Angelo Eliades, Cat Green, Tammi Jonas, Kirsten Larsen, Charles Massy, Fran Murrell, Robert Pekin, Carol Richards and Emma Kate Rose.

Changing the world one step at a time


A thoroughly inspiring read. There are real heroes in our midst that you won't read about in any mainstream "news" publication, but they can be found in the pages of this book. These people, and many like them, are quietly and courageously getting on with changing the world one step at a time, despite the enormous challenges faced (both societal and personal). In the words of Henry David Thoreau, "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." These people and others like them are effectively striking at the root of seemingly insurmountable problems affecting our society and their effectiveness is readily apparent by the transformations taking place across food and farming and ultimately whole communities. If you want to read something optimistic and hopeful for the future, then this is the book to read.
