Green Challenge Film Fest:  SEED; The Untold Story
Don't miss the 5th and final offering of the Green Challenge Film Festival 
7 p.m. , doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Collingswood Community Center
30 West Collings Ave. Collingswood, NJ
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food. Film will be followed by discussion with seed librarians Jeff Quattrone and Keith Monahan.
Organic popcorn & a door prize; free and open to the public - Bring a friend! Sponsors: GMO Free PA, Oaklyn Green Team, Sustainable Collingswood, and GMO Free NJ Please register at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2913707 MORE INFO:  call (856) 425-2221www.GMOFreeNJ.com/events Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/events/320266065078479/?
