Grannies Grow the World

Grannies Grow the World – is the working title for an important film project by a team with Oxford connections.

UVic historian Elizabeth Vibert and filmmaker Christine Welsh are making a film about older women innovating for food security in challenging settings – rural South Africa and an Indigenous community in BC.

Elizabeth did her DPhil at Oxford and Christine’s sister Jennifer Welsh was a Rhodes Scholar and is Professor of IR at Oxford.

The film team is in the midst of an online fundraiser. For more information and to watch the short, inspiring video, please visit
