Seeds of Justice follows Ethiopian plant geneticist Dr Melaku Worede’s inspirational work to re-valorise farmers’ knowledge and protect their position as guardians of seed diversity.

Seed Matters is a short film capturing some of the voices from The Great Seed Festival which took place in October 2014, coordinated by Gaia. The festival was aimed to raise awareness of the importance of seed, and to celebrate seed, food and biodiversity. The festival was the space in which the Uk & Ireland Seed Sovereignty Programme was first conceived, proving that great things can emerge from collaborative and celebratory spaces.
