Green Film Series Celebrates Seedy Saturday with 'Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds'

Spring is here and many coasters are looking over their seed catalogs and planning their gardens. Those seeds are one of the most important resources on earth. They are the basis for our food, fuel and fabric. Yet they at risk. Approximately 90 percent of the fruit and vegetable varieties that existed 100 years ago no longer exist today according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN. But there are people who are working to save this precious resource.

In support of the One Straw Society and Seedy Saturday, the Green Film Series will screen the film Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds on Thursday, March 26 at 7:30 pm at the Roberts Creek Hall.
