presented by Los Angeles Food Policy Council

  • Wednesday, 10/9, 5pm - 7pm

Tribal biologist Matt Teutimez leads the first fireside chat as part of a series about the layered history of food, development, and cultural transformation embodied at this park site. Yaangna is the indigenous name for the current site of LA State Historic Park. Participants learn how traditional food cultivation can regenerate soil, water, and ecosystems. Participants are invited to touch and taste edible native plants to create their own land-based relationship with food. The event includes a food sampling. Capacity is limited to 30; RSVP preferred, space given on a first-come, first-served basis.
