Transition Kamloops is partnering with the Kamloops Food Policy Council to bring you the March movie in the Films for Change series: From Seed to Seed. Join us Wednesday, March 25th in the Barber Centre, HOL190, TRU (note the location: this film is NOT being shown in the Alumni Clocktower Theatre!)

There will be a seed swap taking place before the film at 6:30 PM and the showing of the film begins at 7:00 PM. There will also be fresh popcorn, with real butter! As always, admission is free but donations to cover the cost are much appreciated.

From Seed to Seed depicts the joy and heartfelt struggle of a Canadian family to sustain their organic farm in a changing climate.

In Southern Manitoba, Terry and Monique are pouring their hearts into a small, ecological farm. In love with the land, their methods are derived from generations of farming tradition, along with the best current knowledge of organic farming. Raising crops and several types of livestock, they struggle mightily against a foe their agricultural predecessors never anticipated: global climate change.

Depicting large as well as small operations, the film shows what farmers are up against, and how determined many are to adopt environmentally responsible strategies, despite the seductive conveniences of modern agricultural practices. Through one setback after another, the film’s subjects display tenacity, endurance, humour and a sustaining dedication to family and community.  

From Seed to Seed exemplifies the best qualities of those who farm, and provides a hopeful look at a modern movement that will prove vital in turning the tide of environmental destruction.
