SEED: The Untold Story

September 4, 2016

Event Navigation


Sunday, Sept 4  4:30   Buskirk-Chumley Theater

We’re in the midst of a crisis of genetic diversity: we’ve lost over 94% of our vegetable seed varieties, leaving our food supply dangerously vulnerable to blight and famine. Chemical seed corporations only worsen this tenuous situation, blocking the genetic differentiation that keeps our crops healthy by patenting them. Thankfully, an inspiring ensemble of farmers, scientists, and seed savers works tirelessly to combine ancient stewardship with emerging science. SEED tells their story – and the larger history of human agriculture – with equal parts whimsy and rage.
