SPECIAL EVENT WITH SEED SAVER FOUNDERS JUDE AND MICHEL FANTON + GUEST MC WENDY HARMER - BROADCASTER
Seeds provide much of the nutritional value that humans need and seed plants are the foundation of human diets across the world, yet the industrial food chain continues to control and direct the food we have access to and this is reflected in what is being served in dining rooms across this country every night. Meanwhile there is environmental destruction, social upheaval and land grabs on a massive scale and we have become content with paying a premium to consume food like substances that are bad for our bodies.
Save Our Seeds is a social impact and environmental event hosted by Permaculture Northern Beaches, Kimbriki Ecohouse and supported by Northern Beaches Council. This event will answer some serious and fundamental questions around the importance of the humble seed to food security and biodiversity.
World-renowned speakers and Seed Enthusiasts Michel and Jude Fanton founded The Seed Savers’ Network in Australia in 1986 which quickly attracted national attention, and they have since 1992 taken the message of the need to conserve traditional varieties of food plants to over forty other countries.
If you are interested in learning about easy and practical ways of saving and sprouting seeds or connecting with other like minded individuals and organizations then this is a must see event and it’s right here on your Northern Beaches. There will also be seed giveaways. Numbers are limited and bookings are essential.
