Event Description

Who will renew US agriculture in the future? Historically, we looked to the children of family farmers to become our future farmers. Today, Latinx people (people of origin from the Americas, and many with deep indigenous roots) do the vast majority of the day-to-day work on US farms, including biodynamic, and comprise more than 80% of farmworkers for all US crops. In spite of this growing and increasingly stable population of farmworkers and the fact that 18% of the US population is Latinx and growing (28% by 2050), only 3% of US farm owners are Latinx. How can biodynamics open healing pathways for Latinx farm-workers to become farmers? We explored this topic with vigor in Portland last year, and we will engage our imagination around it in New York. Join us to consider the year 2050 and how it happens that we leap from 3% to 28% Latinx farmers in the US. Si se puede! We will celebrate and learn from Latinx farmers and allies. We will explore the real-life challenges facing Latinx and non-Latinx people who dream of healing Earth and community. We will lift up the benefits of working together and building on the gifts of biodynamics for renewal of our culture, economy, governance, and ecology.
