Seed Saving Film Screenings and ‘Sowcial’ Seed Swap (Celbridge)

To launch the Kildare Seed Library, we are hosting a series of documentary film screenings in the 3 participating branches over 3 days. 

We hope that people attending might bring along some seeds to swap with each other, to start a community of green-fingered enthusiasts! It is also an opportunity for people to borrow seeds from the new Seed Library in each of the branches. No booking required.

Seeds of Freedom (2012, narrated by Jeremy Irons) provides an overview of the history of agriculture, charting the transition of the farm into a factory, and highlighting the impact of the agrochemical and GM industries. In tracking the story of seed it becomes clear how corporate agenda has driven the take-over of seed in order to make vast profit and take control of the food global system.

Seeding Tomorrow: A New Seed Sovereignty film (2023). This magical new film, made by Andy Pilsbury for The Gaia Foundation, follows the market gardeners in Ireland who are returning to seed production; amongst the chaos of Brexit and climate change, their story offers security and hope for the future. They are seeding tomorrow and the world needs more growers to do the same.

Dates: 28 March 2023 - 6.30 - 8pm
Venue: Celbridge Library, W23 VA47
