Mothers of the Land & Mass Seed Deposit with Glasgow Seed Library

Mothers of the Land is an indigenous made film accompanying five women from the Andean highlands of Peru in their daily struggle to maintain a traditional and organic way of working the land.

Peru is predicted to be among the three countries most affected by climate change. Farmers in the region use both traditional and modern agricultural techniques to maximize clean energy and combat extreme changes in weather.

Followed by a workshop with Glasgow Seed Library. Bring your saved seeds for a Mass Seed Deposit, hear from people passionate about seed saving and pick up some skills and techniques. We invite everyone interested in resilience and food sovereignty to get involved.


This screening will be captioned for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences.
Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and Lottery funding from the BFI.

Glasgow Seed Library is a collaborative project, instigated by Glasgow Community Food Network (GCFN) and the Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow (CCA). It has been supported by the Gaia Foundation UK Seed Sovereignty Programme.
