With more than 800 graduates around the world, Seed School is a pioneering course that is helping shape the local seed and food movements far and wide. RMSA’s Seed School Teacher Training builds on the foundations of Seed School and empowers students to take the next steps in transferring seed knowledge to communities via educational models to exponentially increase seed literacy where they live. During this six-day course, participants will gain a deep understanding of ancient seed saving practices alongside permaculture principles and leadership development training to empower them as community seed leaders. This unique opportunity is limited to 25 students and available by application only on a first come, first served basis. Some seed saving knowledge is required.

4th Annual Film Event: Screening Modified

Join us for our 4th Annual Film Screening Event. This year we are excited to show Modified. It is a feature-length documentary-memoir that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in Canada and the United States, despite being labeled in 64 other countries around the world. Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the grassroots struggle to label GMO foods, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the moving story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who died of cancer while the film’s production was underway. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family home video archives and playful cooking and farming vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show, in a mouth-watering celebration of homegrown food. The mother-daughter investigative journey skillfully debunks the myth that GMOs are needed to feed the world, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system.

We are excited to have the film maker Aube Giroux join us for a virtual post screening Q and A. Aube Giroux is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, part-time organic farmer, and food blogger who works on food and sustainability issues. She has directed two short documentaries for the National Film Board and several independent productions. Her work has been shown on CBC and at international film festivals. Aube is the creator of Kitchen Vignettes, an acclaimed online farm-to-table cooking show on PBS with a large social media following. The show received the 2012 Saveur Magazine Best Food Blog Award and is a two-time James Beard Award nominee. Aube holds an MFA in Film Production from York University. Modified is her first feature-length documentary. Purchase Tickets Here!
