For three days, hundreds of people from around the world will virtually gather, listen and discuss the regeneration of our world’s foodways to advance good, clean and fair food for all. Each day will focus on a new lens through which our attendees will listen, share and plan the future of our climate, health and food justice


The world over, women have been caretakers and protectors of seed, and it is this work that we will highlight on the final day of our Seed Summit.
