Reclaim the Seeds is an event during which the exchange of information and seeds is combined with discussions on political themes and practical workshops. The goal is to involve more people in the movement towards agriculture biodiversity and robust, sustainable food production. Reclaim the Seeds contributes directly to this by encouraging the exchange of rare and special varieties.Reclaim the Seeds began as a protest against the new EU seed legislation in 2010. Today, the focus is more on resistance against patents on crops and on supporting a climate neutral, ‘fossil free’ agriculture. The programme also covers other practical, theoretical and political topics related to agriculture.
