SeedBroadcast Celebrates: Seed the Unknown Story at the Santa Fe Premiere.

 

  They tried to bury us 

They did not know we were seeds.


SeedBroadcast  and the Mobile Seed Story Broadcast Station will be outside the Jean Cocteau cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Wednesday November 16th from 6pm to 9pm for the Santa Fe premiere of Seed: The Untold Story. 
The director Taggart Siegel will be available for questions and answers after the screening. 

Bring  your seeds to swap and your own seed stories to share.
In this sobering and unsettled time the beauty and potential of our heirloom seeds and the stories they hold can bring us together.
We look forward to seeing you there. 

"As many irreplaceable seeds near extinction, SEED reveals the harrowing and heartening story of passionate seed keepers as they wage a David and Goliath battle against chemical seed companies , defending a 12,000 year food legacy."
