International Seed Day (ISD) is an educational and fun day to celebrate the seeds,learn how to plant and save them, bring awareness about the patenting of life forms, the danger of bio-piracy, the alarming effects of GMOs and the set backs of mono-cultures.
On the occasion of International Seed Day (ISD), which coincides this year on Sunday,we will give INEAS members organic seeds for herbs and fast-growing vegetables.
For INEAS members outside of Massachusetts, seeds will be send via post mail. For members living within 20 miles from Cambridge, we will come on Seed Day, Sunday, April 26to plant the seeds in their balconies or yards . For those living in areas more than 20 miles from Cambridge, we will schedule an appointment to plant the seeds in their yard by April 30.
To be be part of this fun and educational project, you can join our membership by April 20 athttp://www.ineas.org/join.htm This way, you will be able to receive the organic seeds and/or schedule a planting session before Seed Day.
