This October, Portland joins other cities in Oregon – throughout the Pacific Northwest – across the US – and around the world – to commemorate World Food Day 2013. www.beesandseedspdx.com
Pack a pic nic and bring your family to celebrate pollinators, seeds, farmers and the healthy local foods that nourish us. The event particularly honors and offers respect to pollinators and seeds. Without our pollinators and diversity of seeds, we couldn’t eat the wide variety of fruits and vegetables we all enjoy. We also salute seed savers, who preserve our biological and cultural heritage.
The event will feature classes on bee keeping, gardening, foraging, a kids corner focusing on bee activities, a seed exchange, live entertainment, and special guest speakers include George Kimbrell, of Center for Food Safety , Scott Bates, of GMO Free Oregon, Julia DeGraw, of Food and Water Watch, and Ed Edmo the Shoshone Bannock Storyteller. Bees and Seeds will also debut the first ever Inconvenience Store.
