During 2014, SeedBroadcast will be implementing a project called SWAP, as a series of traveling Seed Story pollination pop-ups with multiple partners around the United States. These experimental “grow kits” will enable the cultivation of radical seed action where participating organizations and individuals are performative agents, growing and broadcasting seed stories in their local communities and through the SeedBroadcast media network.
We are pleased to announce our first partners in SWAP are The Exubernauts!
During their bi-city event called Exuberant Politics, in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, SWAP will be located in both cities for visitors to engage, exchanging seeds, posting local seed and food news, and sharing and listening to seed stories through an in-house audio feed.
And we would like to welcome Carolyn Scherf as an Iowa SeedBroadcaster! Carolyn is a farmer and creative worker cultivating a joyous flight from corporatized definitions of value and success in Iowa agriculture.
She will be mobilizing one of the SWAP kits and partnering up with local organizations, farmers, and gardeners to reach out to a broad network of seed resilience. Carolyn will be recording local seed stories and posting blogs from theses events here on the SeedBroadcast blogger.
Stop by and join in SWAP, bring seeds to share, take seeds home to plant, post events, activities, and how to’s on the SWAP bulletin board, and come by to listen to seed stories!
