Ideas and education

WWAC celebrates a November 'Harvest' with Bolivian Quinoa Growers (via Zoom): Dr. Tamara Stenn's talk, "Indigenous Sustainability, Regeneration, and Hope: Harvesting Bolivia's Royal quinoa," will take us on a journey to Bolivia and the country's vast salt flats, ringed by volcanoes and infused with the cosmology of the region's indigenous peoples. It's in these vast salt flats where rare and ancient varieties of Royal Quinoa grow, a 100-year-old, hand planted variety that is considered sacred by its indigenous producers. Despite the economic downturn, quinoa growers have persevered in their harvesting concept, navigating a global market's demands and fluctuations. Today many quinoa producers continued to grow their quinoa by hand, slowly and in balance with nature and the demands of the land. These practices are grounded in the concept of sumaq qamana (Ketchwa), or buen vivir (Spanish), meaning "living well," a concept representing unity of human and natural patterns. Sumaq qamana is guided by a belief in collective benefit, working for the good of the community, and with faith in the ancestors and gods. 4 - 5:30 p.m. Free. Zoom.
