Event Description

Tuesday Jan 20th 6:30PM at the Limelight.

One of the world’s most precious resources is at risk! This film will help others learn what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all of our food: seeds. While the price of gold and oil skyrockets, the fate of our most priceless commodity is ignored. Seeds provide the basis of everything from fabric to food to fuel. They are as essential to life as the air we breathe or the water we drink… but given far less attention. Over the past one hundred years, seeds have steadily shifted from being common herigage to sovereign property. This film tells the story of seeds by following the challenges and triumphs of some of their most tireless stewards and advocates.

Everyone is invited to stay after the film for an informal conversation about how these issues affect us a a local level in our community.
