Seed: The Untold Story

Seed: The Untold Story

Farming may seem prosaic to the uninitiated, but “Seed: The Untold Story” reveals the poetry present in the practice through its smallest element.- Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, having been worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. Features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel. Post-film panel discussion and Q&A.

Post-film panel discussion with Seeding Communities Founder, Andrea Cadwell; Seacoast Permaculture Group Organizer, Amy Antonucci; Black Trumpet Bistro Chef/Owner, Author and Heirloom Harvest Project Co-founder, Evan Mallett; and Horticulturist and Curator of Historic Landscapes at Strawbery Banke Museum, Erik Wochholz. The evening will also include an Heirloom Seeds Giveaway.
