2017 Keynote

Our three guest speakers called for symbiotic alliances and unity to generate positive change in our community, our food and our future.

Mas Masumoto

“It’s my hope that when we work together in this ecosystem with shared values, we can transform the food system. I want to foster a food system that is not based on failures of others. In many ways, this thought is revolutionary.”


Eric Holt-Gimenez

“We have to make social and structural changes beyond food and farms. Social issues have been used to divide us…and we need to build bridges and alliances to achieve transformation.”


Nikki Silvestri

“We build economic fertility by starting from a place of acknowledgement. Ecological fertility is the bridge between economic and social fertility.”
