  1. So glad this is here in Portland. Looking forward to it. To be grow your own non-gmo org food and save seeds is the most radical step a person can take today. I love my garden and am looking forward to this conference!

  2. Yes I’m biased, but I’m really proud this is being held in Portland. A meeting of so many great minds and spirits – it will be incredible. Can’t wait to hear the very latest from the forefront of the battle to defend seed diversity and protect centuries of hard graft, love and sacrifice against ‘ownership’ by the corporations, and protect our rights to choose what we eat.
