The SOIL ALLIANCE hub project was launched this year to foster a
radical perspective on  food and fibre production and consumption.

'Soil Alliance seeks to promote  an ongoing  dialogue between rural
and urban based workers of the soil as well as among those who consume
the food and fibre the soil produces. It hopes to  provide news and
analysis in order to encourage and facilitate collaboration among
farming, ecology, locally grown, food movement and climate change

In the context of the current trend to impose consumption shibboleths
on agriculture, the SOIL ALLIANCE  tries to capture some of the
reality of working the soil in the face of climate change impacts and
contemporary capitalism.
