Scholarship Story

"This was my first year attending the EcoFarm Conference and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to attend. Personally, a high point of the conference was the workshop on Indigenous Perspectives. There is a violent, misrepresented history of exploitation and injustice in the United States, that lives at the very heart of our institutions. Calling these injustices out by name and exploring reciprocal pathways forward is foundational for deconstructing and rebuilding our food system. I thank the women of the Indigenous Perspective workshop for sharing their wisdom and experiences. With permission, I’d like to pass on their stories of resilience and unwavering commitment to intuitive traditions. This is where we start to build a better future of food."

"While I gained knowledge from the speakers and panelists of the 2021 EcoFarm Conference, I was amazed about how much I learned from the participants. I'm still getting acclimated to virtual events, and wasn't sure how much I would get out of the conference without an in-person experience (since this is how I best learn). But it was a good experience being able to communicate with other participants via the chat (who were often very knowledgeable about the subject in their own right), and also to pose questions as they came up-- instead of having to wait for the post presentation Q&A designated time. For instance, I found this to be especially true in "Reconnecting Markets & Finding New Ways to Feed Communities During COVID-19." This was one of my favorite, learning-dense sessions. Additionally, my other favorite, learning-dense session was the Discussion Group: Organic and Regenerative Ranchers and Processors."
