Video by Seed Savers’ Network
This is just the first 3 mins of our 57 min documentary on traditional food plants, that we shot in eleven countries. We took all the footage and made it in our editing suite in Byron Bay, Australia in 2008. “Our Seeds” has been shown on television in ten Pacific nations and on cable television in Manhattan NY in January 2010. We offer DVDs of “Our Seeds” for sale and work papers at www.seedsavers.net.
