Corn is a plant with an important strategic and political value. The meat we eat is made from corn. Milk, cheese, sugar, sauces, and beverage all contain corn. Even our food wrappers, the compostable plates on which we eat, the bags in which we carry our food…

However, corn is also the base of diets and in traditional agricultural systems of countless people in the world. They have been growing it since before the takeover of commercial and genetically-modified varieties, which are more adapted for monocultures and intensive agriculture. Also, to add to its rich biodiversity, corn is a staple in the celiac diet.

We’ll discover many of the varieties and shades, thanks to the Slow Mays network, which provides local corn with free pollinization, for which the selection and transformation of seeds take place naturally, in the fields.

Free entry while seats last. We advise you to arrive 10 minutes before the event starts to ensure a place.
