Join Santa Fe Botanical Garden and the Santa Fe Extension Master Gardeners as we begin the 2nd annual Seed School with a film screening and panel discussion of the award winning documentary “Seed: The Untold Story”. Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. SEED: The Untold Story 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 reluctant 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.
A panel discussion follows the film featuring panelists Chrissie Orr, founder of Seed Broadcast; Melanie Gisler, Southwest Program Director for Institute of Applied Ecology; and Zac Carlson, Dragonfly Foundation Coordinator with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden.
