Showcasing Biowatch’s work with farmers in four key areas (diversity; soil and water; seed; advocacy), this book explores the workings of eight homestead farms in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, illustrating agroecology best practices through the personal experiences of each of the smallholder farmers.
Anyone campaigning for environmental or social justice needs to read this David and Goliath account of how a reasonable request for access to GMO permit applications catapulted an environmental watch-dog into almost a decade of litigation against the South African state and monolithic Monsanto - a battle finally won in the Constitutional Court.
Written by Biowatch founder trustees Rachel Wynberg and David Fig, this book provides an insider's perspective on the organisational toll and lessons learnt, and serves as an inspiration to civil society and a warning to those pursuing narrow profit motives at the expense of the environment.
