This week on Tell Somebody, physicist, author and ecological activist Vandana Shiva returns to the show via phone from Delhi, India to talk to Tom Klammer about her upcoming visit to Kansas City on April 17th and 18th, when she’ll speak at Unity Temple on “Cultivating Diversity, Freedom and Hope”. The lecture 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 Freedom and Food Democracy.
Her message of local ownership and self-sufficiency in the production and distribution of food offers a powerful case for the development of urban and local food systems that we’ve seen in Kansas City over the last ten years; her deep understanding of sustainability challenges us to keep reaching across sectors, disciplines, and communities as we grow our regional food system.
