Seeds... the buried beginnings of food - An evening with Simran Sethi (Abbotsford Convent - Thu 5th Dec)

Seeds... the buried beginnings of food, the systems in which it is embedded ... and our capacity to transform them.

Come to the Abbotsford Convent 6.30-8.30pm Thurs 5 Dec, for an inspiring night of conversation, food and music, with special guest, award winning journalist and educator, Simran Sethi. 

It will be, to quote from the Oases website: 
"an evening of invigorating conversation on the buried beginnings of food – the nature of the seeds, crops, diets, industries and systems underpinning our food, and how we can go about changing them for the better. 
Anthony James, Head of OASES Graduate School, and Livia Albeck-Ripka, Deputy Editor of Dumbo Feather, host a conversation with award-winning journalist Simran Sethi, on the current global food crisis as an opportunity to rediscover the sanctity of the seed, community resilience and our capacity for transformation."
P.Simran Sethi is described as, amongst other things:
"a journalist, strategist and educator committed to an expansion of social and environmental engagement that includes voices from rural and urban communities. Simran is currently an associate at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI) at the University of Melbourne in Australia, where she is conducting research on the loss of agricultural biodiversity in our food system. Simran is also the Queen’s College Sugden Fellow."
Tix: available at proceeds to Foodbank and the Choir of Inspiration and Hope.
