Seed Freedom is Food Freedom

Seed Freedom is Food Freedom
 

Freedom to save, sell and exchange seeds is what Seedy Saturday is all about.

You will find the community and instructions to plant and save seeds at several talks: For the beginning gardener, How to plant a seed: the basics, with Robin Sturley at 10:15 am and Making Seed Saving Fun, with Carolyn Herriot, Feb 15, 2 pm at Seedy Saturday.

  • Seed Freedom is the basis of Food Freedom, since seed is the first link in the food chain.
  • Seed is the embodiment of bio cultural diversity. It contains millions of years of biological and cultural evolution of the past, and the potential of millennia of a future unfolding.
  • Seed Freedom is the birth right of every form of life and is the basis for the protection of biodiversity.
    Excerpted from the Declaration on Seed Freedom, by Dr Vandana Shiva
