WHAT IS THE LANDSKILLS FAIR?
At its heart, the Land Skills Fair is a multigenerational and multicultural skill and knowledge exchange that aims to provide a safe space for everyone to learn from each other and explore different land-based topics and practices.
The event is member-led, with the majority of the skills, workshops and talks being offered through members of The Landworker's Alliance, Land In Our Names, FLAME and our other partner unions and organisations.
Over the weekend, expect an awesome medley of workshops, talks, activities, music and of course delicious food and drink. We see the Land Skills Fair as an opportunity to build the Food and Land Justice movement through a diverse, celebratory and creative space.
ABOUT THE ORGANISERS
The Landworkers’ Alliance is a union of farmers, growers, foresters and land-based workers. Our mission is to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food and land-use system for everyone.
Local & Green
Education & Exchange
Celebration & Community Building
The event aims to raise awareness around climate change and seeks to be as sustainable as possible. The entire event will be powered by solar and other renewables with no fuel or generators onsite!
Supporting local businesses and producers is central to what we do at the LWA. All produce on site at the Land Skills Fair will be certified organic and sourced as locally as possible.
The Land Skills Fair aims to raise awareness around sustainable food and land-use systems, offering hands-on and academic education, through workshops, talks, traditional craft and practical skills. Our core ethos is centred around sharing knowledge and exchanging skills.
People are the lifeblood of our movement. We want the Land Skills Fair to be a place where we can strengthen community and build opportunities for connection. We cannot create our vision of a thriving, abundant food system founded on equality and collaboration, without coming together and sharing moments of creativity, joy and celebration.
This is an intersectional space for young people, agricultural workers, small local businesses, elders, artists and wisdom keepers to gather and learn and create together. We believe that diversity is key in facilitating the radical change necessary to create a better future for everyone. The Land Skills Fair aims to create a safe and celebratory space for change-makers to skill up and rejoice in building a creative, holistic, multidisciplinary and multicultural movement for a fairer food and land system.
