What is the local food movement without recognition of the Indigenous Peoples who stewarded these lands for thousands of years and on whose homelands contemporary farms are built on? This special pre-conference field day will highlight the ongoing Amah Mutsun Tribal Band and Land Trust’s natural and cultural resource management programs in collaboration with Pie Ranch and others along the central California coast. We will provide an overview of the broader Indigenous food sovereignty movement and discuss a vision of food production that centers on Indigenous partnerships.
The event will be held on the traditional territory of the Quiroste Tribe of the Awaswas Nation. Today there are no known survivors of the Awaswas people. For this reason, the Amah Mutsun is working to return traditional indigenous land stewardship to Awaswas territory to ensure the Awaswas people are never forgotten. The Amah Mutsun invite and welcome all other Ohlone and Indigenous peoples to join them in doing this work to honor the Awaswas, and invite EcoFarm attendees of all backgrounds interested in connecting with the Indigenous communities of their homelands to join us. Join the team at Pie Ranch and the Amah Mutsun Land Trust for a day discussing and experiencing effective pathways toward healing our relationships with each other and Mother Earth.


Pie Ranch is located outside of Pescadero, CA, about 1.5 hours drive from Asilomar. Lodging is not available at Pie Ranch. However, Tuesday night lodging is available at Asilomar Conference Grounds for participants who will be attending the conference.
