Seed:The Untold Story

seed the untold story vandanaDid you know that in the last 100 years 94% of our seed varieties have been lost? There is a tremendous threat to our seed biodiversity by the monopolization of seeds with the majority of seeds owned and controlled by biotech companies in our world. Three chemical companies, Monsanto, DuPont and Syngenta own most of the seeds. The diversity of our seeds is endangered. Henry Kissinger said “if you want to control the people, you control the food.” Vandana Shiva said “if you want to control the food, you control the seed.”

indian with seedsFood Integrity Now spoke with filmmakers, Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz about their new film, Seed: The Untold Story. This film is the third film in a trilogy of films which started with Real Dirt on Farmer John, Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Tell Us? Taggart and Betz explained how seed savings has become a lost art and why the seed is key to maintaining biodiversity on the planet. They shared stories of some of the seed saving heroes and their experience with the Hopi Indians during their filming. These stories will leave listeners with a renewed sense of passion in understanding what we are losing. Their message is uplifting and one of renewed hope that we can create a better world for generations to come by reestablishing the lost art of seed saving.
