On 29 September 2015, farmers from India and other parts of the the world – converging at Navdanya for ‘Vasundhara‘ – celebrated the ‘Day Of Corn’ in solidarity with all defenders of indigenous, renewable, open pollinated corn seed globally and in particular with Mexico where corn diversity and the ‘Día del Maíz‘ first started, centuries ago.
Farmers exchanged Corn Seeds with farmers from over 10 countries at the National Organic Farmers’ gathering at Navdanya to commit themselves to Seed Freedom announcing that no law, no corporate power will come in the way of their duty to protect the Living Seed. Navdanya together with Regeneration International and IFOAM Organics International renewed the Pledge for Seed Freedom.
