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

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 Justice (2015, narrated by Jon Snow) explores the life of Ethiopian plant geneticists Dr Melaku Worede and Dr Regassa Feyissa to rebuild the country’s seed diversity after the devastating famine of the mid 80s.

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: 30 March 2023 - 5 - 6.30pm
Venue: Leixlip Library, W23 WR96
