Dig In!

Date: 2008
Project Partners: Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN), National Farmers’ Union Youth

Food security has become a key concept in the global movement resisting the industrialization of agriculture and growing inequities in the distribution of, and access to, food globally. To build a workshop around this concept, Check Your Head worked with the National Farmers’ Union Youth and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network to launch the Dig In! project. Working collaboratively, the organizations shared skills and knowledge to build outreach capacity, knowledge of food and agriculture related issues and facilitation and communication skills. The goal was to develop a workshop that engaged youth and adults could use to develop their understanding of the local food movement and sustainable agriculture movement in their community and across Canada.
