The SeedBroadcast Project
SeedBroadcast is a generative project exploring grassroots food and seed sovereignty through collective inquiries and hands-on creative practices. Throughout the year, we initiate community projects to examine critical issues surrounding seed and food sovereignty, visit local farms and gardens to experience what is happening first hand in the field, and engage in creative strategies to dig deeper into the real, often unheard, stories of local agriculture. SeedBroadcast believes that local communities hold a genius of place that nourishes the core of sustenance. We seek to reveal this innovative knowledge, while pollinating creative practices, which animate the saving and growing of local seeds, to provide an avenue for the revitalization of localized and sovereign food sources.

SeedBroadcast moves between being a collective body of individuals and a multi-‐ faceted project in performative action. It was initiated in 2011, at the Compartiendo Semillas, Sembrando el Futuro, Seed Exchange, in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Since then, it has brought together diverse groups of participants in New Mexico and across the country, at gardens, farms, libraries, museums, schools, and community events, to activate the reflection and sharing of local land-based seed stories. Artists, Jeanette Hart-Mann and Chrissie Orr are founding members of this collective and are the current animators of SeedBroadcast and the Mobile Seed Story Broadcasting Station.
