Document 2019
Mothers of the Land + Mass Seed Deposit with Glasgow Seed Library

Fri 25 October 2019

Mothers of the Land is an indigenous made film accompanying five women from the Andean highlands of Peru in their daily struggle to maintain a traditional and organic way of working the land.

Peru is predicted to be among the three countries most affected by climate change. Farmers in the region use both traditional and modern agricultural techniques to maximize clean energy and combat extreme changes in weather.

Followed by a free workshop with Glasgow Seed Library. Bring your saved seeds for a Mass Seed Deposit, hear from people passionate about seed saving and pick up some skills and techniques. We invite everyone interested in growing, resilience and food sovereignty to get involved.
