As more people organise from the grassroots, community food initiatives are on the rise. These small steps not only empower, but offer alternatives to the globalised food system that favours multinationals. At the same time, within Muslim communities awareness is growing that Islam offers ecological principles that extend beyond the term ‘halal’.

With a deeper food ethic waiting to emerge more fully, there is much that spiritual traditions can offer and each of us can do, to contribute to a more holistic paradigm – one that empowers individuals, helps build resilient communities, and genuinely draws us towards a sustainable and more compassionate world.

Through this project, participants take part in hands-on practicals, are empowered to learn from each other and engage in grassroots decision-making & organising followed up with action. The project is ongoing, and the approach is both contemplative and active.
The programme will include:
A workshop with Wasi Daniju & Muzammal Hussain from Wisdom In Nature.
A practical on the land with Naomi Glass from Spitalfields City Farm.
