SPECIAL EVENT WITH AUSTRALIA'S LEADING EXPERTS IN SEED SAVING - JUDE AND MICHEL FANTON
and MC - WENDY HARMER
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 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.
Australia's leading seed experts Michel and Jude Fanton founded The Seed Savers’ Network in Australia in 1986 which quickly attracted national attention, www.seedsavers.net They now manage over 100 local seed networks in Australia, have initiated seed saving in 44 countries, and assisted setting up 35 food biodiversity projects. They bring the message of the need to conserve traditional varieties of food plants to Sydney for this one only event.
The night's MC is radio broadcaster, author and local legend - Wendy Harmer.
