Fair Trade Alliance Kerala Host Seed Fest
Jan 22 – Jan 26 all-day

Fair Trade Alliance Kerala is organising Vithu Gunam Pathu Gunam – Seedfestival from January 22nd to 26th 2017 at Kelakam Village in the Kannur district of Kerala. The organisation has embarked on the initiative under the firm belief that it can recapture the food security of the farming households and community only if it can achieve seed swaraj in its truest sense.

The seed festival is envisaged as a focused effort at displaying, exchanging and preserving all sorts of seeds, planting material, indigenous livestock, medicinal plants, indigenous and wild trees, etc. It will be a venue for the sharing of experiences and knowledge related to preservation and propagation of indigenous seeds. Various seminars, agro instruments expo, cultural events, etc. will take place on the sidelines.

While the effort will be lead by 4500 farmers of FTAK, it is visualized as an inclusive initiative that will be embraced by the sensitive farming community in the Malabar region of Kerala.
