Join us online on the 23rd and 24th of October, 2021 for discussions, workshops and talks celebrating the diversity, opportunities and deep cultural connections of our seeds.

The 2021 Seed Gathering – our first ever! – will be held virtually to keep all participants safe and minimise any disruption to programming due to changing pandemic restrictions.

However, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to ensure that all attendees still feel connected, engaged and excited by what’s on offer!

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Keynote by internationally-celebrated scientist and activist Dr Vandana Shiva
  • Updates and planning sessions for our grain and vegetable seed networks
  • A screening of Gaia’s acclaimed ‘Seeds of Justice‘ documentary
  • Spotlight on a new oat de-huller prototype and processing equipment
  • Discussions on grain and vegetable seed legislation in the UK post-Brexit
  • Wisdom from international allies and collaborators
  • Seed genetic diversity insights and opportunities

…and much, much more!

The Seed Gathering is being brought to you by The Gaia Foundation’s Seed Sovereignty Programme and our event partners the Organic Research Centre, the Landworkers’ Alliance, and UK Grain Lab. It has been made possible thanks to the kind support of our funders: Thirty Percy, the Samworth Foundation, the A Team Foundation, the Savitri Trust, and Be the Earth.
