GREEN LIVING EAST LONDON, MARCH MEETING
Where: Enviro Centre at Nahoon Estuary Reserve, Bonza Bay
When: 17th March
Time: 14:30 to 16:00pm
Programme: “Seeds of Change”
At this meeting we will be exploring the topic of ‘seeds’, those magical little entities!
We will kick-start the meeting with a short talk by Tim Wigley on his experiences in Bangladesh, where farmers responded to the devastating effects of Monsanto’s GMO seeds by forming the Naya Krishi Andolon (New Agriculture Movement). Thus restoring the tradition of seed saving and the saving their diverse genetic heritage from near destruction.
We will then view a short movie, Vanada Shiva on GM food & Monsanto
Artwell Chivinge will talk us through the art of collecting and storing seeds.There will be a chance to discuss all of the above. Let share our collective knowledge and experiences! We will finish off with the opportunity to share/trade/barter seeds. So if you have any seeds lying around at home please bring them along. Please not that meetings held at the Enviro Centre require the hire of the hall. We therefore would be grateful for a R10 donation to go towards this expense.
For those of you not in East London, check out our Seed & Plant Exchange and get involved!
