Community Resilience in Agriculture During Uncertain Times
Decolonizing Regenerative Agriculture – With the film production team of Gather
Wednesday November 11 – 12:00 – 2:00 PM MDT
There is already vast knowledge in our collective histories to guide us out of climate disaster, racial inequity, and land degradation. This panel will include discussion among Indigenous and BIPOC leaders of ways we can reframe our relationship to land and how we can work together to heal soils and other natural systems, grow healthy crops and livestock, and along the way also heal ourselves. We will explore the reintroduction of Indigenous frameworks for psychological connection and relationship with our lands, with a focus on recognizing and dismantling the current extractive systems and structures that continue to colonize the minds of land stewards.
