Ag Skills – Farming From an Indigenous Perspective
With Tony Cervantes & Sara Raskie, Calmil Teoyotica
Join Sara and Tony at Calmil Teoyotica (Sacred House Surrounded By Flowers). Immerse yourself in how we grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and medicine from an Indigenous perspective. Learn about Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (TEK) as it applies to tending the Earth so that the whole thrives. See how we tend herbs and flowers planted in the orchard for diversity, pest control, and beauty. We will harvest and process nopales (prickly pear pads) introduce specialty added value crops and share time delving deeply into the question of “why do we farm” looking at economics, food sovereignty, ancient local food cultures, and more.
