Robina McCurdy – The Power of Seed Sovereignty

Robina McCurdy – The Power of Seed Sovereignty

Beginning with a condensed overview of the current global seed situation which is eroding our right to save, share and trade seeds, this ‘global
stocktake’ is followed by Robina sharing seed security solutions which are happening within Aotearoa/New Zealand, as farmers and urban
gardeners alike wake up to the severity of seed decline.  We learn about how to activate bioregional seed sovereignty through a range of
community seed saving and exchange systems, from school seed banks to seed libraries to bioregional seed saving networks. Presentation
includes the 3-minute trailer of Robina’s ‘S.O.S: Save Our Seeds’ documentary.
