Join us for the second event in the series “Fair income for Farmers: towards a Solidarity Payment Movement”.
On the 29th of March, we will go international! Together with farmers on the other side of the world, we will talk about how to strengthen the international movement for a fair income for farmers!
What does a solidarity payment system look like in a country where most people have a very low income? During this event, we will discuss some options, like a solidarity loan for farmers, and an international solidarity system, where shareholders here can buy a share in a CSA in, for example, Colombia.

This concept of ‘Solidarity Payment’ (where shareholders can decide the farmers’ gross salary) is developed by Elske Hageraats at Ommuurde Tuin in the winter 2020. Elske: “Our vegetable bags are now for free – I don’t want to earn any money on the product. I just want the costs – that come with sustainable production – covered, and a fair income: at least a minimum wage.” A recent study shows that most CSA farmers earn below the minimum wage. According to Rekenkamer, about half of the Dutch farmers have in income below the minimum income standard, when subsidies are not taken into account (with subsidies included it is still 1/3rd of the farmers who are below the minimum). In order to make sure that (peasant) farmers can have at least a minimum wage, this concept was developed.
