The Green Film Series is collaborating with One Straw Society to present dinner and a movie to support Seedy Saturday with the screening of “SEED: The Untold Story“ on Friday March 3 at 7pm at the Roberts Creek Hall.

'SEED: The Untold Story' will be screened on Fri Mar 3, 7pm at the Roberts Creek Hall


Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. "SEED" follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy.

In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. 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 this harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource.

Created by the filmmakers who brought us “Queen of the Sun: What the Bees are Telling Us”, Taggart Siegal and Jon Betz have produced another stunning, inspiring film in “SEED”.

The screening will be at the Roberts Creek Hall, Friday March 3 at 7pm. Doors at 6pm. Admission is by donation at the door (suggested $10).

The dinner offering is Crispy potato tiger butter curry & Aromatic Infused Coconut Rice ( $8). Also available is Seaweed popcorn ( $3 ) and a Cold Press Ice Herbal Tea ( $2).

The Green Film Series events are meant to foster the role of film as a catalyst for dialogue, networking and action, encouraging community engagement on environmental and sustainability issues. The series is produced by the Rhizome Up! Media Society.
