Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. SEED follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. 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 and Dr. Jane Goodall.
Following the viewing of the film, we will have a discussion moderated by Dr. Lauren Poster, PhD Ecology and Evolution of Rider University.
