World Food Day Begins with Seed Sovereignty (Presbyterian Church USA)


Approaching World Food Day, we explain fundamental barriers to serving up the right to food with a special focus on a critical ingredient – seeds.  Presenters explain the role of seeds in more democratic, equitable, and sustainable local and global food and farm systems. Seeds bring the cultural aspects of agriculture, and the freedom to save and maintain control over seeds is foundational to food sovereignty. Farmers know this, and multinational corporations do as well. While the power of corporations is concentrated and focussed, farmers are naturally dispersed and challenged to unite their voices and influence. Hear how farmers and allies are succeeding in changing the landscape, and how we can support these efforts locally, nationally and globally.
