Network Meeting Nov 2017

February Network Meeting
February 6, 2019 | 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Welcome back! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone after the December/January break and, of course, enjoying our legendary potluck with you.

Because it’s been a while since our last network meeting, we thought it would be nice to have the space for the network to update each other on what is happening these days. Please bring your projects, needs, and offerings to share with the group.

Please bring a dish to share!

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.
