In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. The film documentary, SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our remaining legacy of seeds and traditional agricultural foods.
Join Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury, Sudbury Horticultural Society and Sudbury Downtown Indie Cinema Co-op Wednesday, May 24, 7p.m. for a screening of this important documentary, followed by a community discussion.
The screening will be held in Laurentian University's School of Education amphitheatre (rm SE-111), on Athletic Building Road, just off South Bay Road.
Suggested donation $10 to help cover event costs.
After the screening there will be a community discussion and Q&A with four local panelists who will share their reflections on the film and their knowledge:
- Fionna Tough of the Flour Mill Community Farm will speak to urban agriculture
- Peggy Baillie of Three Forks Farm will share seed saving skills for a northern climate
- Stuart McCall of McGrows Farms and Gardens will talk about heritage varieties
- Colleen Zilio of Seeds of Diversity will explain the importance of biodiversity of seeds
