Rocky Mountain Land Series with Gary Paul Nabhan - Chasing Chiles: Hot Spots Along the Pepper Trail

Historic LoDo: Gary Paul Nabhan is an award-winning author, plant conservationist, and sustainable-agriculture advocate. His collaborative work in agricultural conservation has been honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Quivira Coalition and the Society for Conservation Biology, and with the Vavilov Medal. A pioneer in the heirloom seed movement, he raises rare chile peppers and Mission-era orchard crops in Patagonia, Arizona. Nabhan will discuss and sign his new book Chasing Chiles: Hot Spots Along the Pepper Trail ($17.95 Chelsea Green), which he co-authored with Kraig Kraft and Kurt Michael Friese. Chasing Chiles looks at both the future of place-based foods and the effects of climate change on agriculture through the lens of the chile pepper—from the farmers who cultivate this iconic crop to the cuisines and cultural traditions in which peppers play a huge role.
