The coming months there will be several lectures about gardening and agriculture in ‘de Buurtboerderij Ons Genoegen’ in Amsterdam. Also ASEED will fill one evening where we will explain why we organise the Reclaim the Seeds weekend and what our plans are for the GMO campaign. The evenings will be in Dutch and so are the annoucenments of the lectures.
In cooperation with ASEED the Centre for Biological Agriculture in Lelystad will show a movie about fossil fuel use and farming in the UK, and will host a presentation on food sovereignty and the setting up of a fresh food cooperative (versvoko’s). This all will take place during CBL’s Public Day on 9 September.
Organised by ASEED during the 2.Dh5 festival
In November 2011 the 7th 2.Dh5 festival took place in Amsterdam. The theme of this years ‘gathering for activists and world-changers’ was the crashing capitalism. For ASEED it was important to create link between the economical crisis and the problems in agriculture world wide. We did this by oragnising a workshop about this topic.
The report of this workshop is (so far) only available in Dutch.
November 2nd 2010, Enkhuizen, The Netherlands – Today around thirty climate conscious citizens paid a visit to the main premises of international agri-chemical giant Monsanto in the Netherlands. The aim was to find clues about the company's hidden agenda. Their suspicions were aroused by the company's new claims to feed and fuel the world, which somehow do not match Monsanto’s current atrocious human rights and environmental record.
