PeterboroughSeed diversity filmto premiere

The Cornucopia Project will present the local premiere of “SEED: The Untold Story” at the Peterborough Community Theatre on Oct. 4 at 6 p.m.

Peterborough was chosen as one of approximately 40 cinemas across the country to premiere the film. The screening is part of Cornucopia’s Food for Thought Film series about food, nutrition, farming, and sustainability, held the first Tuesday of each month.

“SEED” is an award winning, feature-length documentary about the dramatic loss of seed diversity and the future of our food. In the last century, 94 percent of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In the film, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to a most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $9.
