Tinamaste, Costa Rica – June 21, 2022 – Now is the time to discover the power of seeds, and encourage biodiversity. Regenerate Your Reality will be participating in Vida Autentica’s 6th Annual Regional Seed Festival in Tinamaste, Costa Rica on June 25th from 9am-3pm. If you would like to represent your farm or organization in the festival please contact: email@example.com.
Costa Rica is proposing Law 29078 (the “Seed Law”) to require the registration of all seeds. Support is needed to educate the vote on why this bill cannot pass. Participants in the Seed Festival will learn about measures the community can take to preserve seeds and plant more biodiversity in the form of trees, herbs, native plants, and fruits. The seed festival and exchange attracts farmers from all over the region to exchange their seeds and trees and hosts workshops on the importance of seeds and organic practices.
As Vandana Shiva founder of Research Foundation for Science, Technology, and Natural Resource Policy (RFSTN) states: “Global food production has been rising steadily for more than half a century, comfortably beating population growth. Despite this fact, hunger has been steadily increasing. Just four corporations control 90% of the global grain trade. The same corporations have a grip on the entire food system – from buying into seed, chemicals, processing, packing, distribution to retail. Seed banks are a necessary safeguard to our seed biodiversity. But our food security will continue to be threatened until we make drastic system changes.”
In her book, Regenerate Your Reality, bestselling author and environmentalist Jean Louise Pullen states, “We depend on trees and seeds for nourishment, for medication, for oxygen-for our survival. In numerous ways, you can follow the underpinnings of any given culture through the legacy of their crops and seeds. Once considered to be available to all, like water, seeds have ended up generally privatized, such that now a few companies presently control the worldwide seed supply. As guardians of the land, we are seeds of change, regeneration, and love. Seeds are our connection to life itself; we cannot have life without seeds. We are seeds, ready to sprout and then blossom; it is time for us to remember the love that is our true nature. We all have this seed deep within our hearts. The best way to cultivate our garden of love is to start planting seeds-within ourselves and in the earth-each cycle.” Published by Publish Your Gift®, Regenerate Your Reality: Your Guide to Regenerative Living, Happiness, Love & Sovereignty is now available for purchase at www.regenerateyourreality.com.
