Sowing a Culture of Interdependence
The Demeter Seeds project in conjunction with the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS) and the Science and Justice Working Group are putting on a Seed Summit at UC Santa Cruz on February 23, 2013.
Dr. Vandana Shiva and a representative from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation are coming in the evening to have a debate about seeds, poverty, hunger, and the future of the global food system. We are working on getting a moderator for the event, which might be Michael Pollan. I figured that this day would be a great opportunity to bring together seed heads nationwide with the intention of building a collective movement toward regenerative, farmer-centric, organic seed systems.
Let's use this space to brainstorm ideas for workshops, talks, tours, and events that you would like to see at the seed summit. Please state if you would like to lead a workshop, tour, etc. but also feel free to just generate ideas for others to take on!
