We have partnered with Collective Eye Films and Federated Conservationists of Westchester County  (FCWC) to provide the following films to you –  Seed, Modified and Queen of the Sun.

This fundraising event is a panel discussion of the Films Series which is screening from 2/27 to 3/25 on Pleasantville Community Television (PCTV). Click on the film names below to watch the documentary. 

SEED: The Untold Story Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared, as biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds.  

Modified features the story of filmmaker Aube Giroux and her mother as they embark on a personal and investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world.

Queen of the Sun: What are the bees telling us? QUEEN takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive. This ultimately uplifting film weaves the unusual and dramatic story of the struggles of beekeepers, as told by them as well as scientists and philosophers from around the world.  

The films will be followed by a panel discussion led by Carol G. Durst-Wertheim, Ph.D., President of FCWC, on March 25th 7:30-8:30 pm.  

Among the panelists joining us will be Joan Gussow, noted food policy expert, Dr. Lewis Ziska, a renowned plant physiologist, and Carol Capobianco, Director of the Native Plant Center.

This event is a fundraiser for our partners and there is a suggested contribution of $25-$50.  Contributions are not required but are greatly appreciated.
