Registration Open: Bolivia: Llamas, Quinoa and Andean Food Sovereignty (March 2014 Tour)

This event has passed.

The Bolivian Altiplano is one of the most remarkable landscapes in the world, stretching 500 miles at an average altitude of 13,000 feet. Join Food First and learn about the food and farming systems at the heart of highland indigenous cultures and struggles for autonomy, while building solidarity with rural communities, local NGOs and social movements working to build food sovereignty in Bolivia.

Led by local Bolivian guides and a Food First expert, this delegation will travel from the shores of Lake Titicaca to the Southern Altipano to gain a unique lens into this fascinating world. The focus will be on two of Bolivia’s most important products, quinoa and llamas, and meeting with farmers and herders to hear firsthand how they have been affected by globalization and climate change.
