Seed Gathering

Summary information

A collection of discussions, workshops and talks celebrating the diversity, opportunities and deep cultural connections of our seeds.

About this event

The Gathering will be held virtually this year to keep all participants safe and minimise any disruption to programming due to changing pandemic restrictions. However, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to ensure that all attendees still feel connected, engaged and excited by what’s on offer!

What you can expect:

  • Keynote by internationally-celebrated scientist and activist Dr Vandana Shiva
  • Updates and planning sessions for our grain and vegetable seed networks
  • 'Seeds of Justice' screening
  • Spotlight on a new oat dehuller prototype and processing equipment
  • Discussions on grain and vegetable seed legislation in the UK post-Brexit
  • Wisdom from international allies and collaborators
  • Seed genetic diversity insights and opportunities

...and much, much more!

The Gathering is being brought to you by The Gaia Foundation's Seed Sovereignty Programme and our event partners the Organic Research Centre, the Landworkers' Alliance, and UK Grain Lab.

It has been made possible thanks to the kind support of our funders: Thirty Percy, the Samworth Foundation, the A Team Foundation, the Savitri Trust, and Be the Earth Foundation.
