Event Details:

Join us for a free screening of "Seeds of Time: One man's journey to save the future of our food"  from Academy Award nominated director Sandy McLeod.

Synposis:

A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.

Dr. Fowler is at Stanford as a visiting scholar with FSE and will introduce the film, then answer questions following the screening.

Read the New Yorker article about Dr. Fowler's work and learn more about the film.

Lunch will be served.
