We will be hearing stories from food growers across Lambeth to discover why it’s important to them to save seed. We are also excited to be hearing from experts Helene and Katie.
Helene Schulze is co-director of the London Freedom Seed Bank and Regional Coordinator for Southeast England at the Seed Sovereignty Programme. Here her particular interest is strengthening and connecting community seed initiatives in the region to get more people accessing, sowing, saving and sharing agroecological, open-pollinated seed in the Southeast.
Katie Dow is working on a research project at Cambridge University, entitled Reproducing (Bio) Diversity: alternative seed economies in the UK. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, Katie has been gathering stories for a year or so and IEL is looking to collaborate with Katie to make a film about seed saving in Lambeth.
