A Forterra speaker series

Our speaker series takes big issues impacting the whole planet as well as regional issues we can’t ignore and dissects them through the lens of our shared love for this place. Featuring acclaimed thinkers who shine a spotlight on the many different perspectives and issues related to sustainability, Seed & Feed emphasizes the connection between people and place, built and natural, communities and lands, and working and wild places. Join us for inspiration, new perspectives and tasty bites, all in the name of keeping this place special for future generations.
