Sowing Food Sovereignty: Women Empowering & Feeding Venezuela

Venezuela has long been dependent on food imports, and with the plunge in global oil prices, comprising 95% of the nation’s revenue, Venezuelan citizens are faced with a food crisis. This workshop will discuss the female-lead urban and rural movement for food sovereignty, from the cutting-edge Seed Law to the traditional Venezuelan version of permaculture.

Maria Sanchez Cron, Has been helping people empower themselves through food and mindfulness for 20 years.

Omar Sierra, Deputy Consul General of Venezuela in Boston.
