5th Annual Farm-to-Table on the Quad
Don't miss the Farm-to-Table Dinner on the Quad at UNC Asheville, our annual harvest feast! Gathered around the table in the heart of our beautiful campus, we honor and celebrate the land that sustains us, the gardens and businesses that feed us, and our collective efforts to insure that our wider community is engaged and nourished.
The 2019 Dinner will be guest hosted by Mko'Mosé (Dr. Andrew Judge, pictured above), with support from the American Indian and Indigenous Studies program at UNC Asheville. Moko'Mosé is a professor and coordinator of Indigenous Studies at Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Ontario, Canada. He specializes in traditional Indigenous knowledge and works with Elders across North America to support "the conscious awakening of his students and himself." Dr. Judge is an initiated Mayan day count keeper and regularly participates in the ancient ceremonial practices of his Anishinaabe ancestors. He is currently developing programming in Indigenous land-based practices and invites his students to work with traditional medicines and foods to learn the ways of the Ancestors. In the summer of 2018 Andrew founded Minjimendan ("In a state of remembering") an Indigenous foods garden dedicated to helping the community remember their role in restoring the vitality of the Earth. The spiralling terraced garden aims to inspire a revitalization of Indigenous foods systems and land based sustainability practices. In Mko'Mosé words, "The spiral is the basis for all life on Earth, and it’s found in almost every natural growing thing on the planet. What it comes down to is the spinning of the Earth around the sun, and the sun going around the galaxy.”
Our theme for the 2019 dinner and Fall Greenfest as a whole will be HOME SWEET HOME. How do we come to understand what "home" is to each of us? Who belongs and who doesn't? What would it look it to re-inhabit the places we live in ways that connect us to each other, this land, and the living world that surrounds and includes us?
Mko'Mosé will also be offering a free public lecture in the evening on September 24th. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/UNCAGreenfest
