ORFC – being a counter conference – is an act of radicalism in itself. But what does it mean to be radical and what are the advantages of taking a radical approach towards agriculture and enlightened farming? This session discusses these issues. It examines the need for a radical interpretation of agriculture in the Anthropocene, and the need for individual enlightened farmers to tie their work to broader struggles for social justice and environmental sustainability.
