REEL EARTH FESTIVAL – SEED: The Untold Story
Date: Apr 20th, 2017Time: 7:30pm
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food.
FREE SEED PACKET to all who attend the in person event courtesy of Meadowlark Hearth.
