Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Seeds have been worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. In a harrowing and heartening story, a determined group of farmers, scientists, lawyers and indigenous seed keepers 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.

After the documentary film, hear how the Rowayton Gardeners recently benefitted from a donation of seeds from the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds company and how they are exploring the concept of a Rowayton Seed Library and/or Exchange Program.
