from the seedthemovie.com website:

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).

As part of the Wild About Saskatoon NatureCity Festival (http://www.wildaboutsaskatoon.org/), we are hosting our monthly gathering in the back yard of one of our 2015 permablitz hosts. We will share some food and conversation, see how a permaculture design has evolved over the course of a year, identify some native plants and plant some more native plant seeds.

PermaSask will provide beef and lentil burgers and buns. Please bring your own side dish to share and BYOB.

Permaculture Saskatchewan members will also share their thoughts on what permaculture is and how permaculture design endeavours to reconcile and change our relationship [for the better] with the land.

If you have plants and seeds that you’d like to share, bring them along for a plant and seed swap.

Permablitz! – Sunday May 1, 2016

Panorama 2

The 2016 permablitz season is about to begin.

On Sunday May 1 we’ll gather in a front yard in the Meadowgreen neighbourhood to dig swales for water catchment, prepare planting beds for herbs, flowers, vegetables, berry bushes and native seeds, and retrofit some rain barrels.

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information please email: permablitz@permasask.ca.

Permablitzes are a great way to learn about permaculture design in a hands on way.  No experience necessary. There’s a variety of jobs to do whatever you experience or physical ability.
