just missed it!
The Traditional Agriculture and Sustainable Living Conference was held in early November in New Mexico. It looks wonderful! Did any of you go?
The Native Earth Bio Culture Council (NEBCC) and the Pueblo of Tesuque are hosting the 5th annual Traditional Agriculture & Sustainable Living Conference November 5 & 6, 2010. This years event will be held at Northern New Mexico College, in Espanola, NM. The Symposiums will include internationally renowned speakers as well as local and regional experts in the areas of food security and sustainable ecology and a heritage seed exchange as well as panels on youth issues in the 21st century, food and nutrition, water issues and traditional farming, land restoration and medicinal herbs.
An important theme will be pro-active community response in support of sustainable communities, ecologies, health and indigenous spiritual practices. There is a vendors market featuring natural earth friendly products, information and services. These events, we hope, will contribute tremendously toward the goal of making the entire nation aware of the need for sustainable lifestyles and the role of traditional agriculture.
