Join Port Phillip EcoCentre for this FREE screening of a film “Growing change” that investigates alternatives to the industrial and corporate controlled food system that have been developed by people of Venezuela. After the film have your say in a discussion! What can we learn from their experience? What can we do differently?

The documentary begins with an investigation of the 2008 global food crisis, looking at the long-term underlying causes. Will expanding large-scale, energy-intensive agriculture, be the solution or re problems? If we already produce enough food to feed the world why do so many people go hungry? After hearing about efforts in Venezuela to develop a more equitable and sustainable food and agriculture system, the filmmaker heads there to see if it’s working and find out what we might be able to learn from this giant experiment. It’s an inspirational story full of lively characters, thought provoking insights, stunning scenery and ideas to transform the food system.
