“I am so glad you are  celebrating at the Seed Festival. When I started Navdanya the seed saving movement,where ever I went to collect native seeds, there were seed festivals. Living seed is celebrated as the source of life. Non renewal seed has become  commodity. Living seed is life. “Bija”-the seed-in Sanskrit means that from which life arises again and again in perpeptuity from within. In the little seed is all its past evolution ,and all its future unfolding.In it are all its relations, with the sun, the soil, the bees, the butterflies, the farmers, gardner, child who saved it and planted it with love.I am with you in the spirit of seed freedom.Do join the movement to save non GMO, non industrial, seeds that are not patented.” Dr. Vandana Shiva
“All and everything emerges from out of a seed. Seed is the name of the potential. From a very small seed emerges the very large redwood or banyan tree and then they become a seed again. Seed is the symbol of the cycle of life and symbol of time.  If we take care of the seed the seed will take care of us all.  In all of us there is a seed of great potential – that is our quest.” Satish Kumar

“One of the most important things we can do is envision the new – a skill that the Western world has largely forgotten. It is our artists who can take us to a place where we can create a vision so beautiful that others will follow”. Polly Higgins, Earth Lawyer
