SEED-THE UNTOLD STORY-a must see!

seed-the-untold-story

Seed-THE UNTOLD STORY
Jean Cocteau Theater
Nov 16-24
7 pm

SEED THE UNTOLD STORY movie is coming to Jean Cocteau on Nov 16-24 . We should all go see this award-winning movie while it is here for a few days. This is right up our alley with building a sustainable, healthy community. Their goal is for SEED to inspire audiences to take action and become a champion of seeds.

SEED: The Untold Story is an eye-opening environmental documentary about the dramatic loss of seed diversity and the movement to restore the future of our food, from the creators of The Real Dirt on Farmer John & Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?

Visit seedthemovie.com/santafe for more info on movie times and movie guests.

From their site: http://www.seedthemovie.com/
‘Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshipped 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.’

Hope to see you there!

Amy Hetager

Amy Hetager as many of you know was one of the founders of Home Grown New Mexico and passed away 2 years ago of brain cancer at the tender age of 40. She was the heart and soul of our organization and was a great inspiration to all who knew her. Home Grown New Mexico would not be the organization it now is without all her hard work and vision. She was also a Santa Fe Master Gardener and helped bring both organizations together for the Kitchen Garden & Coop tour where Master Gardeners help with our tour.

The Parks Division worked closely with Amy Hetager on the community gardens while she was alive. Since her passing, they have worked on changing the name of one of the community gardens in honor of her. As with any bureaucratic venture, it has been a long, arduous journey and we are thrilled that Jessie Esparza of the Parks Division has carried the torch to make this happen. They will officially re-name the Sunnyslope Meadows Community Garden on the north side of town to The Amy Hetager Garden on October 24th and there will be a celebration potluck afterwards for this great honor. Home Grown New Mexico rescheduled our fall potluck to time it with the renaming event.  The community potluck is sponsored by the Parks Division and Home Grown New Mexico.  The Parks Division decided on a weekday to accommodate  family members of Amy who may join us. Even if it’s on your lunchbreak, come enjoy the food, camaraderie and stories of our dear friend.

Won’t you please join us and bring a harvest dish to share in her honor?
Below are the details of the events and a map to Sunnyslope Community Park.
