Vandana Shiva's Visit, July 6th, 2019.

“In Nature’s economy, the currency is not money, it is Life.”  - Vandana Shiva

You have seen her in Food Inc., Fed Up, and every other major food documentary – and now you can meet her at The Hickories.

The Hickories is honored to host Dr. Vandana Shiva on the morning of Friday, July 6th from 

9:00-10:30am. We are putting together a small but diverse group of key environmental and food advocates, young farmers, and community gardeners to hear her speak and to talk with her about how we can promote Navdanya’s work and increase the sum biodiversity, food independence, and regenerative agriculture in our region of Fairfield and Westchester county.  ###>

To me, the values of Navdanya, Dr. Shiva’s international conservation organization, represent our best hope for protecting biodiversity and the rights of farmers.

Dr. Shiva has spent her life fighting corporations like Monsanto, campaigning for women’s rights, farmer’s rights, and saving seed.  Join The Hickories in welcoming Dr. Shiva to our food region for this special morning.

We are currently looking for event sponsors – please contact me, Dina Brewster, if you would like to be a part of the central team.

All others are invited at a $100 minimum contribution level.  The donation can be made directly to Navdanya (a registered 501c3.)  If you would like to attend, donate and/or bring a local farmer to this event, please RSVP by contacting me:
