It is with honor that I will be participating as a panelist on the Women in Agriculture segment at

The Native Earth Bio Culture Council (NEBCC) 5th Annual Traditional  Agriculture & Sustainable Living Confernce, November 5th & 6th, 2010 from 1pm-2pm in the main auditorium of Northern New Mexico College located in Espanola, New Mexico.

The conference will include internationally renowned speakers as well as local and regional experts in the areas of food security and sustainable ecology.  The event also includes a heritage seed exchange and panels on youth issues in the 21st century, food and nutrition, water issues, traditional farming, land restoration, traditional medicine, and medicinal herbs.  The Native Earth Bio-Culture Council is a partnership of like-minded organizations including Institute of Natural & Traditional Knowledge (INTK), Traditional Native American Farmers’ Association (TNAFA), International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, and Four Bridges Traveling Permaculture Institute.

The Native Earth Bio Culture Council was created to bring awareness to the prevalence, presence and threat of genetically modified food seeds and foods. This organization promotes healthy, traditional, sustainable methods of agriculture that exist as viable alternatives to the dangers of corporate agriculture. In cooperation with the Native American communities of Northern New Mexico with their tradition of agriculture and self sufficiency we are asking people to abandon their reliance on corporate agriculture and the consumerism life styles that surround them. We demonstrate the validity of their traditional agriculture and knowledge to the broader community and teach it by presenting an opportunity to listen to, and share in their world view through our symposium.
