Meet some of the farmers who have shared their stories in 2021.

In 2021, #IGrowYourFood became a global action day where farmers and sustainable food and farming advocates make their voices heard and address you, policymakers and anyone interested in showing how organic farming can make a difference and be a pathway to sustainable food systems.

"Regenerative economies allow us young farmers to generate our own opportunities; to investigate and transform the reality of our territories."

Saskia von Diest

South Africa

"Choosing to farm organically and with agroecological practices is the cleaner, kinder choice to protect the only earth that we have, for all the future generations, of all species, human and non-human."

Branislav Andjelic

Serbia

"Growing organic isn’t only good for the environment or us consumers - growing healthy food & offering it to people in the city is also a profitable business!"

Maya Stolastika Boleng

Indonesia

"I fell in love with the philosophy of organic agriculture: giving kindness to protect our environment sustainably and keep people healthy."

Rita Otu

Nigeria

"I want to encourage farmers to create awareness of the importance of organic farming while we solicit funds for the government to support us. Farmers, #organic is life!"

Erastus

Namibia

"In my country, we procure most of the food from other countries, so there’s a campaign to promote local produce. I want to be part of that change! Let’s produce as much food locally as possible so that, at the end of the day, we can be food secure."
