Dr. Vandana Shiva "Cultivating Diversity, Freedom and Hope"
Apr 3, 2014

Dr. Vandana Shiva is a physicist, ecologist, activist and author who is changing the way the world thinks about food, agriculture and sustainability. Her lecture, “Cultivating Diversity, Freedom and Hope,” will address the value of diversity in nature and in society, as well how the monoculture of the mind can destroy that diversity at every level. She will share what is happening to seed and food, and how "Gardens Of Hope" protect Seed Freedom and Food Democracy. Her message of local ownership and self-sufficiency in the production and distribution of food offers a powerful case for the development of urban and local food systems that we’ve seen in Kansas City over the last ten years; her deep understanding of sustainability challenges us to keep reaching across sectors, disciplines, and communities as we grow our regional food system. Hosted by: Cultivate Kansas City, UMKC's Environmental Studies Program and Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design. Major Harvest Sponsor: Chipotle Mexican Grill Chipotle will host a free reception for all attendees prior to the event! Join us at 5:30 p.m. to enjoy sofritas tacos and margaritas in the lower level of Unity Temple (Eden Alley's space).
