African continental seed meeting
Seed diversity, created by peasants over centuries, is in danger of disappearing and the diversity of seeds that remain is increasingly threatened by large international corporations, most of them coming from the agrichemical sector. In Africa, different forces are converging to grab peasant seeds and undermine their diversity and the knowledge and practices associated with them.
At the Fambidzanai Permaculture Centre, Harare, Zimbabwe, an area rich in biodiversity, situated 20 kilometers west of Harare, Zimbabwe, African peasants are gathering November 12th - 14th to discuss and exchange information on the values of their traditional African seeds, since they believe they must be defended.
