Mobilities and Externalities in Nova Scotia’s Local Food Movement
Monday 17 February 2020
Local food movements argue that a reduction of food miles has positive social, environmental, and economic impacts. A full account of the costs of food production, however, needs to go beyond the path from food to plate and consider the wider set of translocal social and economic relations involved in local food production. Using a multimethod, ethnographic approach, this project examines the costs of local food production, placing special attention on the international labour migration that sustains Nova Scotia’s agricultural sector.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
