Celebrating Womxn’s Leadership in Food: Weaving Connection, Cultivation Cooperation
Celebrating Womxn’s Leadership in Food advances a social movement of womxn in food and farming by creating spaces to celebrate, connect across difference, build trust, and create community so that we may cultivate new forms of leading together to shift paradigms of power and meaningfully address ecological crises and social inequity. We center leaders who are women-identified, trans, queer, Black, Indigenous and People of Color, and whose identities intersect and transcend these categories. People of all gender identities are welcome to participate! Our first in person symposium since 2019 will center on being (safely) together! We will hear from folks leading meaningful cooperations and lean into conversations about collaboration. We will feast, enjoy live music and engage in hands on workshops like natural plant dying, seed saving and farm touring. We will be together.
Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Green Valley Farm and Mill, 13024 Green Valley Road, Sebastopol, CA, 95472
Cost: 30 – 60
