Dr. Vandana Shiva will be appearing in Kansas City for two events April 17-18. The first day is her 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 feedom and food Democracy. The second day will be a dinner. This is being put on by my friends over at Cultivate Kansas City in partnership with the University of Missouri at Kansas City.
