We are excited to share that Cultivate Kansas City is partnering with UMKC to host a 2-day visit by Dr. Vandana Shiva on Thursday, April 17 and Friday, April 18, 2014. Dr. Vandana Shiva is a physicist, ecologist, activist and author who is changing the way the world thinks about food, agriculture and sustainability.

Dr. Shiva's 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.
