Poster Image for Open Sesame - The Story of Seeds

One of the world’s most precious resources is at risk. This timely and emotionally moving documentary illuminates what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all our food: SEEDS. Seeds provide the basis for everything from fabric, to food to fuels. Seeds are as essential to life as the air we breathe or water we drink…but given far less attention. It’s not too late…yet.

  • Approx. 60 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Stephanie Douglass, award-winning storyteller, farmer, writer, and performer.
