We are celebrating the recent designation of the Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area, with a retrospective of its role--and that of many others--in bringing back heritage grains to the multi-cultural communities of southern Arizona & northern Sonora. We will also be learning from leaders in other regions who have pioneered comparable innovations & grain revivals. Where do we go from here?

This morning’s event will feature Jeff Zimmerman (Hayden Flour Mills), Don Guerra (Barrio Breads) & Terry & Ramona Button & Joy Hought, detail “the rise of White Sonora Wheat”, with commentaries by Liz Carlisle, Bob Quinn, Vanessa Bechtol & others in roundtable discussions.

We are delighted to have Liz Carlisle of UC Santa Barbara and Bob Quinn of Kamut International join us after Labor Day for a Heritage Grain Forum that celebrates a decade of promotion of heritage grains and legumes in Arizona. They are coauthors of the recently published Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs and Healthy Food, from Island Press.

They will discuss their collaboration 4:00-5:30 at Haury Auditorium in ENR2 "green building" on the south side of the University of Arizona campus late on Tuesday afternoon September 3. They will also join us for commentaries the next morning as the key players in the revival of White Sonora Wheat will offer perspectives on a decade of success and innovation at all levels in Arizona.

Grain by Grain Book Launch with Bob Quinn

Grain by Grain tells the story of Bob Quinn, an organic farmer from Big Sandy, Montana. Quinn was raised with traditional farming methods but learned that organic farming could create better, healthier food and bring economic opportunity to his small town. He is the founder of the international company Kamut International and the leader in reviving that ancient grain. Ultimately, Quinn’s story shows the way to a better future for American agriculture, proving that rural America can lead sustainability.
