Film "Seed - the Untold Story"

The Columbia Grange Agriculture Committee brings us a film by Jon Betz and Taggart Siegel.  We will also be presenting views on the present state of seeds and global biodiversity.  Join us for the movie & the following discussion. $5 each or $10 for family with children.  No one turned away for lack of funds. There will be popcorn and lemonade for purchase.

The film takes a wide-ranging look at the issues of diminishing diversity in the world’s seed supply and ownership of those seeds. The rise of big agriculture, we’re told, has led to an alarming reduction in the varieties of food being grown and has imprisoned farmers in debt as they have become beholden to the corporations that sell seeds and pesticides.
