Seed: The Untold Story Film Screening at Kensington Public Library

As part of our Seed Savers group, the Cedar Cottage Food Network in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library – Kensington Branch is hosting a free screening and discussion of SEED, The Untold Story.

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.

SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).

****The event is free and the facilities are fully accessible. ****
There will be a seed swap happening during the event so please bring seeds you would like to share with the community!
