Demeter and the commons of being

This book explores a #past which has made our present lives possible and looks to a #future which will not come to pass without our help. Using a speculative approach based on biological findings to interpret the #myth of #Demeter, this #book traces the development of #ancient #cereal varieties that evolved from native #Poaceae ‘as if by magic’. It shows that the creation of ancient cereal varieties was unknowingly aided by the habits of prehistoric #hunter-gatherers. The #seeds we see today are the result of many thousands of years of interaction between man and his #environment. This process was not driven by the deliberate #invention of something new but by a #tradition that has stayed the same for millennia: the seasonal #migration of hunter-gatherers and, more recently, the pattern of #sowing and #harvesting.

In the last century, nearly 75% of our agricultural crops have disappeared. They're simply gone. Today, farmers primarily grow 12 crops. And of these, we mainly eat potatoes, rice, corn, and wheat.

100 years ago, people were eating things that most of us will never taste. So what happened?

Back in 1905, a book called "The Apples of New York" was published by the New York State Department of Agriculture. It featured hundreds of apple varieties of all shapes, colors, and sizes, including Thomas Jefferson's personal favorite, the Esopus Spitzenburg.

Rob Kesseler

The exotic forms and luscious colours of the plant world and the way in which they migrate into every aspect of our lives has been a source of inspiration throughout Rob Kesseler's artistic career. Using a wide range of familiar materials and objects from ceramics to furniture and from drawing to photography he creates sensual sculptures and emblematic images that celebrate the subject in a uniquely personal way. His early work explored the tensions between artifice and imitation and the paradoxes of representing nature through ironic and humorous sculptures covered in familiar pictographic icons.

After a transitional period in which decorative excess led to what he describes as the “martyrdom of ornament”, his most recent work reflects current desires to exploit the benefits for collaboration between artists and scientists. Over the past decade he has worked extensively with botanic... mehr anzeigen

Combining Arts and Science for Pollinators: Making Seed Paper
http://www.seeds.ca/d/?t=f5069b7000003138-a288462

Christina Kingsbury shared her presentation on Sewing Seeds: Arts Education and Artist Projects, and then taught us how to make seed paper. Christina shared her experiences making seed paper with children at local schools, connecting them to nature with the hands-on project, and educating them on the importance of pollinators. The paper has seeds of native plants embedded in it, and once it is laid on the ground and successfully germinates, it provides food and habitat for native pollinators such as butterflies and moths, wasps, bees and beetles.

“Restoration Economy” Strives to Protect Pollinators, Create Jobs
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/ldquo-restoration-economy-rdquo-strives-to-protect-pollinators-create-jobs/

"...more than 40 percent of the world’s invertebrate pollinator species, particularly bees and butterflies, and some 16 percent of vertebrate pollinators, like birds and bats, face extinction. Wild pollinators are twice as effective as domesticated honeybees in producing seeds and fruit on crops, including almonds, coffee, tomatoes and strawberries, according to 2013 study in Science. In other words, the loss of wild pollinators may pose an even more alarming threat to food crops than the loss of honeybees. This is true, of course, in wild landscapes, too."

Saving seeds, to spur return to indigenous foods
http://harvestpublicmedia.org/article/saving-seeds-spur-return-indigenous-foods

Taylor Keen wants to reclaim those farming roots with a project called Sacred Seed. With help from students and some urban farmers in Omaha, he’s raising indigenous crops on about a dozen plots around the city. The goal is to preserve these native vegetable varieties and revive the traditions around growing and eating them.

Free The Seed!

Today, only a handful of companies account for most of the world’s commercial breeding and seed sales. Increasingly, patenting and restrictive contracts are used to enhance the power and control of these companies over the seeds and the farmers that feed the world.

OSSI is working to provide an alternative. Seed of OSSI-Pledged varieties can be planted, saved, replanted, exchanged, and shared without restriction. OSSI-Pledged seed can also be used to breed new varieties that are, in turn, also "freed seed." In this way, OSSI ensures that farmers, gardeners, and plant breeders of this and future generations will always have freedom of access to the seeds they need to feed themselves and their communities.

It takes a community to Free the Seed! Contribute what you can, and please share this page with your family and friends.

Your involvement is critical to our success. Thank you!

California Seed Sharing Bill Signed into Law

# SEED: The Untold Story
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind, these subtle flecks of life are the source of all existence. Like tiny time capsules, they contain the songs, sustenance, memories, and medicines of entire cultures. They feed us, clothe us, and provide the raw materials for our everyday lives. In a very real sense, they are life itself.

Yet in our modern world, these precious gifts of nature are in grave danger. In less than a century of industrial agriculture, our once abundant seed diversity—painstakingly created by ancient farmers and gardeners over countless millennia—has been drastically... mehr anzeigen
 

Good Seed, Bad Seed

»For the modern farmer, seeds are easy to come by. Seed companies supply catalogs and mail the seeds direct. What’s not so easy, depending on the crop, is finding seeds that aren’t genetically engineered.«

Good Seed, Bad Seed
http://earthjustice.org/blog/2016-july/good-seed-bad-seed#

In the past few decades, the world has seen a radical consolidation of seed ownership. The top 10 multinational seed companies now control 73 percent of the world’s seed market—up from 37 percent in 1995. Possible mergers among the largest companies, such as Bayer and Monsanto, could further consolidate the control of the world’s seeds into just a few corporations’ hands. These mega-corporations sell both genetically engineered (GE) seeds and the harmful pesticides that the GE crops are modified to withstand.
