Hans Olsson writes article on COVID-19, food shortages, and Christian farming in South Africa

In this article, Marie Curie fellow at Centre of African studies, Hans Olsson, puts focus on the relationship between religion and farming in South Africa and discusses how a Christian model to grow food enters questions of social and ecological sustainability. Highlighting how farming is promoted as a way to counter shortage of food in the context of Covid-19, the question is how Christians’ ‘care for the creation’ remains entangled in historical inequalities and concerns about the role of religion in the South African society.
