Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga are screening the newly released film “Seed, the Untold Story”.

When: Wednesday 9th August, film starts at 6:30pm.

Where: Sustainable Activity Centre, on the Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga.

About the film:

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. 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.

SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

The movie will start at 6:30pm sharp and runs for 94 minutes. After the movie you are welcome to stay for a short discussion, a cuppa and access to the seed bank. We’ll pack up and close by 8.30pm.

Free entry for members. Non members are also welcome, we ask a $4 contribution.

The venue has limited heating and seating options so please dress very warmly, bring a rug and perhaps bring a chair, if you have a comfy, portable one.

Please note the event opens at 6pm for access to the seed bank and our AGM (that’s the Annual General Meeting, and we typically take less than 10 minutes to complete ours). You are welcome to come just for the movie.
