“This is right up there with making love to your spouse,” says a farmer in SEED: The Untold Story.
Directed by Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz and co-produced by Marc Turtletaub, Phil Fairclough and film star Marisa Tomei, SEED: The Untold Story is a remarkable documentary about the importance of seeds and the consequences of losing them. According to the film, an alarming 94% of our vegetable seed varieties were lost in the 20th century. The film follows passionate seed keepers who protect and preserve seeds.

Prior to the film, ECI will host a question and answer session for the audience, as well as discuss the Good Ground Seed Library, a new initiative coming to the Hampton Bays Public Library this March.
