Food Sovereignty Propaganda Posters
Jeff is creating a series of propaganda posters title Growing the Food \Sovereignty Revolution, about food sovereignty as a homage to the Victory Garden series produced by the United States government during WWI and WWII. Advocating the movement to reclaim and rebuild a broken food system, these posters support the issues involved including saving seeds, food justice and posters that raise awareness about the potential loss of local food biodiversity by highlighting local heirloom varieties of food.
