In the spirit of the health and well-being of all Americans, Nutiva is presenting free public screenings of the film "Seeds of Freedom," a 30-minute film, produced by the Gaia Foundation and African Biodiversity Network, about the affect of GMO seeds on global farming in support of the November 6, 2012 PROP 37 RIGHT TO KNOW. Following each screening are panel discussions about the integrity of our food system, featuring speakers supporting the Campaign to Support 'THE RIGHT TO KNOW' and YES on CA PROP 37.

Seeds of Freedom, narrated by Jeremy Irons, charts the story of seed from its place at the heart of traditional, diversity-rich farming systems across the world, to its transformation into a powerful commodity, used to monopolize the global food system.

Community and sponsoring partners include LabelGMO.org, Institute for Responsible Technology, Bioneers, Earth Island Institute, Food Shift, The Gaia Foundation, African Biodiversity Network, Richmond Grows, Women's Earth Alliance and Wiser Earth.

Admission is FREE (Space is limited. Registration in advance suggested.) For more information & free registration, please visit http://www.Nutiva.com/films.
