Description

Imagine a world without chile. It's a sad thought, isn't it? Chile (red or green) is central to our identity as New Mexicans, but it's under threat as changing climate conditions threaten its survival. Gary Paul Nabhan will explore the connections between food and place and the challenges of preserving them.

Gary Paul Nabhan is an internationally celebrated nature writer, food and farming activist, and proponent of conserving the links between biodiversity and cultural diversity. He has been recognized as a pioneer and creative force in the local food movement and seed saving community by Utne Reader, Mother Earth News, New York Times, Bioneers and Time magazine.

Nabhan is the author of several books, including his most recent, "Cumin, Camels, and Caravans: A Spice Odyssey," published by the University of California Press. He resides in Patagonia, Arizona.
