On Sunday, October 23 at 3pm, Netiya will convene LA’s first ever symposium for LA’s faith sector to support more proactive land use and foster greater self-reliance and community food sovereignty in LA. We will be hosted at the Prince of Peace Church in Woodland Hills, which boasts a 2-acre orchard installed by Netiya and Seeds of Hope, along with an edible garden and interfaith food pantry that serves 3000 people per month. Through keynote speakers, Aztec dancers and harvest ritual, a variety of workshops, local food tastings and a tour of a successful congregational orchard/garden/pantry model, our hope is to educate and empower attendees to leave the event with a toolkit of ideas, new skills, and/or some community resources for their spiritual center/religious institution.
The event will also feature the upcoming collaboration, Bread & Salt, a series of exhibitions and programs, launching Fall 2017, bringing together numerous Jewish cultural sites throughout Southern California to explore contemporary, historic and ritual aspects of food at the Food, Faith & Field Symposium.
Netiya is also excited to support Mayor Garcetti's Welcome Home Project and will be gathering new kitchen items to donate to the cause. If you are interested in participating, please bring any of the following items (must be new): can opener, sets of utensils, plates, bowls, cups and pots. Please note that the next round of the project begins September 12th, so ignore any dates listed on the site.
The symposium is family friendly!
