DIALOGUE OF KNOWLEDGE about corn and seeds for the peoples of the Sierra Norte. Otavalo, Ecuador. July 2017

July 2017

A meeting organised in coordination with ECUARUNARI and CHIJALLTA FICI in the city of Otavalo, on the 31st of July 2017, to draw attention to and revalue maize and age-old seeds. At the moment, of the people who are growing them, 60% are rural and indigenous women. The idea is to formalise the meeting so that we can organise it each year on the same date, the time of Mother Earth’s fertility.
