Description

Landworkers’ Alliance 2024 Calendar – Land of Plenty

The 2024 calendar, Land of Plenty, explores the myriad of lifeforms upon which our agroecological farming and land-use systems depend. Taking us on an intimate journey through a mosaic landscape of colourful wildflower meadows, ancient hedgerows, working woodlands and biodiverse pastures, alongside the plants, animals and people that inhabit them, this calendar is a celebration of the rich web of life that sustains us.

With bold and beautiful illustrations by printmaker and long-time LWA collaborator Rosanna Morris, Land of Plenty is an invitation for us all to find joy, wonder, strength and hope in the infinite diversity that brings our agroecological farming and land-use systems to life.

Size: 30cm x 30cm. Paper FSC certified, acid and chlorine free.
Please leave time for your order to arrive, especially during the festive post season.

Landworkers’ Alliance

As a union of land-based workers we strive to represent our members’ interests at government and policy level. We advocate for more and smaller farms, support for new entrants into farming, and for agroecology and food sovereignty to be recognised as real solutions to the multitude of social and environmental crises we currently face.

We take pride in the holistic approach we take in our advocacy work, and indeed many of our campaigns significantly overlap as we consistently promote a framework for our food and land systems underpinned by the values of food sovereignty, agroecology and climate justice.

We lobby for policy changes and better legislation in different jurisdictions  – with some campaigns being specific to the devolved nations of the UK, and as a member of the global peasant movement La Via Campesina we also take a transnational approach to the campaigning work we do, standing in solidarity with peasant struggles across the globe.

La Via Campesina – The International Peasants’ Voice. Globalising hope, globalising the struggle!

La Via Campesina is an international movement bringing together millions of peasants, small and medium size farmers, landless people, rural women and youth, indigenous people, migrants and agricultural workers from around the world. Built on a strong sense of unity, solidarity between these groups, it defends peasant agriculture for food sovereignty as a way to promote social justice and dignity and strongly opposes corporate driven agriculture that destroys social relations and nature. Women produce 70% of the food on earth but are marginalised and oppressed by neo-liberalism and patriarchy. They play a crucial role in La Via Campesina. The movement defends women’s rights and gender equality and struggles against all forms of violence against women. Young farmers, committed to the historical struggle for the liberation of our peoples and the transformation of our reality, are an inspiring force in the movement. They contribute to advancing Food Sovereignty globally. La Via Campesina comprises 182 local and national organisations in 81 countries from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Altogether, it represents about 200 million farmers. It is an autonomous, pluralist, multicultural movement, political in its demand for social justice while being independent from any political party, economic or other type of affiliation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 100+ Cannabinoid compounds present in each hemp plant. There are over 400+ compounds found in hemp plant varieties. CBD Oils have become so excited as they contain a lot of valuable nutrients. Full & Broad Spectrum CBD Oils mean you are gaining all the valuable compounds present and not just isolated CBD.

Recent studies have shown that Cannabinoids are naturally created by the human body, we even create CBD, working in harmony with our own internal Endocannabinoid System, close to our Immune and Nervous Systems. In fact, all mammals have an Endocannabinoid System. The function of the Endocannabinoid System is to bring the body into balance, officially called Homeostasis, as it acts as a cell-communication system all over the body. CBD works with our Endocannabinoid System, particularly supporting our stress responses, which are overly stimulated daily. This science is proving why lots of people use plant based CBD strong products to aid overall wellbeing and calming effects. 

Plants are here to support us when we need them. CBD products provide a natural and harmonious plant top-up to aid your mind and body, helping your Endocannabinoid System to function well.

You can find out more information about CBD here.

What can I use CBD for?

CBD rich products are soothing for the mind, heart, and body, bringing a sense of peace to your daily stress responses.

As herbalists, we cannot provide medical advice. Our CBD products promote health, stimulate your own healing, and we can consult when contacted via email at shop@hempen.co.uk or call us O1184 O5OO95.

CBD rich products are sold as ‘cosmetics’ and ‘food supplements’ we are restricted by not being able to give any medical advice regarding Cannabinoid benefits. There are many peer-reviewed studies into the myriad of benefits, this includes anxiety, inflammation, and epilepsy – though more research is needed. We recommend doing your own research online, we share some light on what CBD is here.

Do hemp products contain THC? Will it get me high?

Simply put, hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant that has been bred to have negligible low levels of THC, which is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the more psychoactive compound. Hemp cannot get you high.

Instead, CBD products made from hemp promote other natural beneficial compounds such as Cannabinoids, one being CBD, that are really good for your health. The flower is pressed or extracted into a valuable CBD rich oil with immunity boosting, and calming properties to name but a few. We also mill the stem into a relaxing tea.

Hemp products made from the seeds such as the Whole Hemp Seeds, Hemp Protein Powder and Hemp Oil contain hardly any, trace amounts, of Cannabinoids, however are a superfood in their own right. The mighty seeds contain all the essential amino acids your body needs and does not produce! 

UK regulations permit only strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant that are very low in THC (less than 0.01% in products). This means you won’t feel any psychoactive effects, so that means none of our products will get you ‘high’. All our CBD products are independently lab tested to ensure the finest quality and to meet government regulations.

How are Hempen products made?

Hempen is a not-for-profit worker’s co-operative. Our profits are reinvested in our mission, not shareholder pockets, we are led by and owned by our workers.

We consult and partner with farmers across the British Isles to increase the cultivation of hemp. Based on the Hardwick Estate, our farm is part laboratory, part community, part homestead, part educational space, part wellbeing hub that continues to evolve and inspire. Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Oxfordshire, check out our Hempen Events to visit!

Our worker’s co-op produce and innovate organic products from hemp cosmetics and hemp based superfoods, on organic farmland certified by the Soil Association. 

Having control over the end-to-end process, from seed to shelf, means we can guarantee unparalleled quality of our products. They’ll always be produced from 100% organic hemp, non-GMO, free of harmful chemicals, heavy metals and synthetic cannabinoids, supporting UK & British Isles farmers.

Are your hemp and CBD products organic, vegan and/or gluten free?

Yes, yes and yes!

All of our food products are certified organic by the Soil Association. We believe food should be organic and nutritious, especially if you’re seeking products to improve your health.

Hemp is naturally vegan, we are a vegan brand, so all our products are too. In fact, hemp seeds and hemp oil are packed with essential fatty acids including the ‘golden ratio’ of omega 3,6 & 9 great for brain health, it’s the alternative to consuming fish! We use Hemp Seed Oil in all our CBD products. Hemp Seeds, are also a full protein. As we see it, the growth of hemp supports the growth of the vegan movement.

Hemp naturally does not contain gluten, therefore our products are gluten-free! The combine machinery is shared with other plant crops, even though it is cleaned we cannot guarantee use for coeliacs.

Can I come and see your farm?

Absolutely. We welcome volunteers all year round for anything from a day visit to one week with accommodation. Take a look at our volunteering page for more information, and to apply. Please note, we work Monday-Friday. Also check our Hempen Events for a visit!
