Farmers and ranchers are specially invited to this conference. You who are seed savers will be honored as part of the seed ceremony. We will be discussing ways to increase the cultivation of foods that are spiritually and culturally meaningful to our communities. We will also discuss ways to meet the need for seeds that are adapted to our climate and water scarcity as we prepare to transform and regenerate our local food systems and give new life to our agricultural traditions.
