Event Details

Second Session

“The Soil is Alive”
 Muskoka organic farmer Dianne Kretschmar is in conversation with Fernando Garcia, an urban agriculture trainer in Guadalajara, Mexico, about the critical importance of the soil. 

“The Alchemy of Agroecology” 
Ethnobotanist Fulvio Gioanetto and Purépecha medicinal plant expert Maria Cacari share their knowledge about how local “weeds” can be used both as medicines and as organic inputs (fertilizers and herbicides) in agroecological farms in Ontario and Michoacán, Mexico.

Since 2015, the Earth to Tables Project, an intergenerational and intercultural exchange of food activists, has produced short videos and photo essays exploring food sovereignty practices in Indigenous and settler communities in Ontario, Quebec, and Mexico. This short film series will feature three of these videos, followed by discussion of the critical issues they raise and how they relate to the experiences of participants.
