We’re delighted to share news of three seedy events coming up in October:
Screening of Seed: The Untold Story, Monday 15th October, 4.15pm, at the Bertha Doc House. Melanie Fryer from the Gaia Foundation will be joined by food activist Anna Lappe for a Q&A afterwards
Talk: A food revolution starts with seed, Tuesday 16th October, 11am-12.15pm, at the Bargehouse Gallery. 9 out of 10 bites of food we take owes its origin to seeds. And yet seeds are often overlooked in discussions about our food system. As part of a full-day of exciting events organised by the Land Workers Alliance, learn how small-scale seed producers are boosting the quality and amount of locally-adapted, organic seed as part of Gaia’s Seed Sovereignty UK & Ireland Programme.
Both of these events form part of a busy programme surrounding the launch of the Gaia Foundation’s photographic exhibition, We Feed the World.
Seed Swap at the Jetty, Saturday 20th October, 12-3pm. Learn about seed saving and swap seeds for the season ahead. Come in the last hour and enjoy a tour of this quirky, floating garden. This event is organised by Urban Growth Learning Gardens.
London Freedom Seed Bank is happy to support these promise-to-be-excellent events.
Peas and Solidarity!
