As we arrive in Berlin for the GMO free regions conference in Berlin we are struck by just how many 'bio' (organic) shops there are.

Since arriving at the farm we have been sustaining ourselves on mainly organic food and it's been easy. We have some fantastic cooking skills between us, access to a lot of vegetables from the farm and there is some great 'wholefood shops' in the surrounding areas for all the extras. We have managed to do this on a budget by buying and cooking collectively.

In one of our previous mythbusters, we've already debunked the myth of climate change being only an environmental issue and exposed how it fuels an entire range of inequalities.

About me: I am a young climate activist. I organise with Young Friends of the Earth Scotland and Fossil Free Glasgow, a local campaign group working to get our council to divest their pension fund from fossil fuel companies. I cannot speak on behalf of "young people" and all the intersections that come with this, but put forward some ideas and challenges that we can bring to the climate debate.

Our food and farming system is being taken further down the road of industrialisation - with the use of more chemicals, more factory farms and controlled by even bigger corporations. Small scale, sustainable producers are being pushed out and healthy food is increasingly becoming a luxury for the wealthy.

Industrialised global food systems cause land grabbing, deforestation and climate change, disproportionately impacting communities in the Global South in order to produce Europe's food.

Animal welfare and human health suffer as a result of unsustainable farming practices.
