Dear friends,

It’s that magical time of the year when we tell Santa we don’t need his presents—we’re taking back the whole North Pole factory. Our annual People’s Harvest Forum is coming up and we’ll explore how to defend, reclaim and mobilize resources to build a People’s food system.
 
­­The People’s Harvest Forum is a grassroots event where we learn about the problems with our corporate food system and its central role in so many of the pressing social and environmental issues of the day. Our economic system is based on usurpation, exploitation and environmental degradation; in this context social movements are converging around issues of food and land to regain the basis of community health and wealth. This event aims to empower participants to take part in these movements and improve our food systems.

It is also the only such space that integrates a vegan ethic to our discussions on the food system we aim to grow, and it’s a veritable convergence of veganic leaders. We are extremely lucky to welcome Nicole Vosper, a former SHAC prisoner and food sovereignty activist; Bonnie Hildebrand who singlehandedly runs a commercial farm and farm sanctuary; Matt Loisel, a gardening instructor and co-founder of the Bay Area’s veganic CSA; William Faith, an urban permaculture instructor and designer; and Joe Kilcoyne, co-founder of Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary, where he is implementing a regenerative plant-based system. 
 
The program will be posted here soon, but don’t wait to get your tickets! With groundbreaking talks, great food and a warm community, we already know it’s the season's best event in San Francisco.
 
Another way we spread holiday cheer is by challenging our favorite vegan Filipino restaurants to duels. Come cheer us on at tonight’s Epic Vegan Pizza Duel & Fundraiser, and you’ll get to eat delicious pizza and support the forum to boot. Can’t make it? Support the People’s Harvest Forum by donating to our fundraiser.
