GMO Free NJ Speakers: From Seed Saving to Seed Sovereignty
We can help build a fair and sustainable agricultural future that will empower communities and create true food security for all, starting with our own backyards. Dusty Hinz and Nate Kleinman, co-founders of the Experimental Farm Network, based in Elmer, will describe how at a GMO Free NJ gathering, scheduled from 6:30 to 8 p.m., September 18, at the Collingswood Library.
Hinz and Kleinman will discuss seed issues ranging from practical, seed-saving basics to current policy issues and how they impact our freedom of food choice freedom. They discuss their thoughts on seed sovereignty and the movement towards a new paradigm of “anti-oppressive agriculture.” The pair will also give practical advice on how to collect, store and start seeds, as well as how to get involved in both plant-breeding and seed-saving projects on their heirloom farm.
