Seed: The Untold Story

PrintThe Nickelodeon will be screening the award winning movie Seed: The Untold Story starting this Friday, through Wednesday September 21st.

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. SEED: The Untold Story 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, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

The screening of Seed at the Nickelodeon is in partnership with Rosemont Market, Cultivating Community, The Wild Seed Project and the Portland Pollinator Project.

  1. Hello, any news on the restaurant going into the west end deli congress street location? Seems like that maybe stalled out?

    Also, do you know what is to become of the frame shop space in longfellow? Last I heard the Otto people were asking to rezone the space. Please tell me they backed out.

    Lastly, how about the space across from Ruskis? Another stalled venture?


  2. West End Deli: Aside from brown paper in the windows, there’s never been any clear indication of what’s going on in that space. There was a rumor of a bar and another of a Chinese restaurant but that’s all I’ve heard.

    Frame Shop: Good question. I just looked at the minutes of the Zoning Board of Appeals and it seems the Board turned down Keon’s request for variances on parking spaces and closing hours. 5-0 on both decisions. Given that, it’s likely this project isn’t moving forward.

    211 Danforth Street: The building owners that originally planned to open a restaurant changed their mind. A venture called Blue Phoenix was supposed to go there but is no longer moving forward. Stay tuned, it’s too good a location and won’t remain empty for long.
