Event Description

Seed is a precious common heritage and an essential component to the future sustainability of our food. Our ancestors have faithfully passed us this incredible gift of life over countless generations. Rowen White, in her work with Sierra Seed Cooperative and Indigenous SeedKeepers Network, is revitalizing the human connection to these sacred heritage seeds and honoring their cultural and practical context within our daily lives. She is a part of a growing movement to “re-localize” and reconnect and rematriate the seeds back to into the rich soil of our hearts and the land under our feet, allowing for resilient seeds that will be ready to meet the challenges of the current conditions. Integral in this seed movement are the cultural memories and stories, and how we regain a sense of who we are as a culture through our foods and seeds. Join us as we learn about the creative ways of re-integrating seed stewardship back into our local community food systems and how we can deepen our understanding of the nourishing cycles of life.
