Seeds of Time – Community Film Screening
Saturday, July 18, 2015
3pm-5pm
Fellowship Hall – First Unitarian Universalist Church
A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds. This free community screening of the film is brought to you by the Green Sanctuary Team. The film is 77 minutes and will be followed by discussion.
