Seeds of Justice

Runtime: 36m 45s | Release date: 2015

"Seeds of Justice" follows Ethiopian plant geneticist Dr Melaku Worede’s inspirational work to revalorize farmers’ knowledge and protect their position as guardians of seed diversity. Treading in Melaku’s footsteps from his youth to the present day through his pivotal experience of Ethiopia’s infamous famine, the film questions one of the society’s most flawed assumptions: that scientists hold the answers to ending hunger, not farmers.

Hi Grace! There are online seed stores for Australian gardeners and it's recommended that you search for non GMO seeds with no chemical treatments. You can also connect with the filmmakers regarding this matter: http://www.seedsoffreedom.info/. Hope this helps! ~ Jasmin

Dr. Melaku is truly a hero - and speaks such truth. He is the voice of reason and is a true scientist - one who is humble enough to realize his education does not make him superior to peasant farmers. He realizes that they have as much to teach him as he can teach them and working together, they can brilliantly solve the issue of world hunger. Amazing and inspirational film.

Quite remarkable - what one man, the brilliant visionary, Dr. Melaku Worede, has achieved, should inspire all of us to do more - one of the most joyous documentaries I have seen in a long time - sowing the seeds of hope.... Long live this wonderful human being...

A beautiful film showing us that local people and farmers are the ones who know what works in that area and that we need to listen to them, especially the women.
