The debates on GMO and organic farming, the future of farmers and agriculture, and the politics of food are not new. Navdanya has been fighting for the rights of the farmer and seed freedom for 25 years. Today, we find ourselves at a crucial point, not just in terms of a movement committed to resisting biological and ecological destruction, but also in the presence of a network of ‘living’ and thriving economies. The Living Farms series explores these questions, looking at five specific aspects of farming – Seed, Soil, Food, Fibres and Farmers. Produced by Navdanya with the support of Fred Foundation, the films are based on the testimonies of farmers, seed savers, agronomist and scientists from across India, as well as from indigenous farming cultures abroad.

We call volunteers to help with translations for subtitles to spread and share The Living Seed widely. Please check: http://seedfreedom.info/seed-freedom-in-other-languages/
