Lauriston Farm

Landworkers Alliance Scotland Manifesto

As members of the Landworkers Alliance, we wanted to highlight their manifesto for Scotland which came out in May this year.

The Landworkers Alliance are a great organisation: a union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers, focussed on creating a better food and land-use system for everyone. Agroecology provides the framework for what they do, it's also the framework which we will work with at Lauriston Farm.

The manifesto for Scotland includes 8 important calls for the Scottish Government and its public agencies. Some of these are of particular relevance to the work we will do at Lauriston, including a call to value local food and land-based workers, make food sovereignty and food justice a reality, support agroecological farming, create local food economies, boost local seed production, provide education and training and create diversity in agriculture and land-based employment.

The manifesto is well worth a read in its entirety. You can access it here:
