The backdrop of Angela Moran's childhood ranged through rust-belt towns; from Niagara Falls, ON to Detroit, MI, and more. Boarded up downtown cores and dilapidated buildings were completely normal sights... until Angela planted a tree as a teenager. In response to her upbringing, Angela immersed herself in regenerative farming communities across the western hemisphere, becoming attuned to the complexities of our globalized system, issues surrounding food, and food justice. Angela has dedicated the past 8 years envisioning and implementing plans for an urban farm field school as well as Victoria's first commercial aquaponic system.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
