Quivira Conference: Ranching and Farming at the Radical Center
Join other attendees and explore the myriad of work and social relationships that make for healthy people and a resilient planet, with particular attention to the role that ranchers and farmers play in cultivating them.
Quivira turns 20 in 2017. In two decades of collaboration, Quivira has grown a web of knowledge and a network of human relationships focused on soil, water, and neighbors. Quivira's original tagline was "working to achieve harmony between humans and nature." The tagline has changed, our methods have evolved, but the essence of what the Quivira community strives to achieve has not. Quivira continues to cultivate innovation, education, collaboration, and hope as the nexus from which soil is restored and relationships grow. This year the conference will take a particularly human approach, bringing people together in conversations about how to focus on what really matters.
Join the 2017 Quivira Conference, Ranching and Farming at the Radical Center, where participants will explore the myriad work and social relationships that make for healthy people and a resilient planet, with particular attention to the role that ranchers and farmers play in cultivating them. From watershed restoration and rangeland monitoring that bring ranchers and conservationists together--to growing crops that encourage balance between bacteria and fungus for carbon sequestration--to matching aspiring and retiring ranchers working together on meaningful land succession--the potential for lasting and meaningful impact is rooted in a deep commitment to relationship building.
The New Mexico Farmers’ Marketing Association is dedicated to strengthening the local food system by supporting direct market agriculture producers and cultivating strong networks for a healthier New Mexico.
