Fair Trade Quinoa, Communities and Markets: The View from Bolivia
Join Dr. Tamara Stenn, Fair Trade Saskatoon and SCIC to share in tales of fantasy and woe as we explore the reverse Robin Hood story of Bolivia’s Royal Quinoa growers. From rags to riches and back again, explore the bitter-sweet triumphs that Fair Trade and global markets brought to Bolivia’s indigenous producers and a most sacred, ancient seed.
Wednesday, May 12th at 12-1pm (Central Standard Time), via Zoom
