It’s your last chance to register for the final 2019 Bring Food Home regional conference, which is taking place this weekend in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory!

Ratinenhayén:thos (the Kenhtè:ke Seed Sanctuary) is hosting Seed to Seed, a day of knowledge-sharing inspired by long-held Rotinonhsyón:ni (Six Nations) agricultural and seed-saving traditions, on Saturday, November 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mohawk Community Centre in Deseronto (1807 York Rd).

The conference is for youth, farmers, hobby gardeners, foodies, and anyone who wants to learn more about seed saving and feeding ourselves through a modern Indigenous lens.

Seedkeepers Terrylynn Brant and Steve McComber and Chef Tawnya Brant will talk about seed saving as food sovereignty, selecting seed in a changing climate, and cooking with seed.

The event will include sessions about:

  • Things to consider when selecting seed to save
  • How to avoid cross pollination and keep seed pure
  • Choosing varieties of corn for shorter growing seasons
  • Panel discussion on challenges and adaptations for growing in a changing climate
  • Breakout discussions and information sharing on experiences this growing season
