Please come and join us for a screening of the newly released film “Seed, the Untold Story”. We thought it the perfect movie to share with fellow seed savers!
We’re hosting a one-off screening, on Wednesday 9th August, at 6:30pm, at the 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.
Please also 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). Or come just in time for the movie, if you wish.
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. (Membership fees have helped us to purchase the screening right). 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.
Optional: bring some movie snacks or supper to share.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
