Todos somos semillas: Huertos de producción de semillas para que germinemos

En el contexto de la pandemia vemos la necesidad de proteger la semilla nativa frente al avance tanto de semillas transgénicas como de importaciones y de la concentración de la distribución de hortalizas. Los huertos de semillas agroecológicas nos permiten mantener y valorar la diversidad genética que tenemos como pueblos mesoamericanos en las producciones familiares y de pequeña escala. Imaginar el futuro en los posibles escenarios virtuales, dentro del sistema actual de distribución de alimentos y en el mundo posible que queremos, nos interpela como generación que asume la responsabilidad de la transformación. Integrar una mesa de discusión del cortometraje de Huertos de Semillas como experiencia de jóvenes trabajando para fortalecer la agricultura familiar, la democratización de conocimientos y la soberanía alimentaria. 

 

We are all seeds: Seed production that will allow us all to germinate

In the context of the pandemic, we see the need to protect native seeds against the advance of both transgenic seeds and imports and the concentration of the distribution of vegetables. Agroecological seed gardens allow us to maintain and value the genetic diversity that we have as Mesoamerican peoples in family and small-scale producti ons.Imagining the future in possible virtual scenarios, within the current food distribution system and in the possible world that we want, challenges us as a generation that assumes responsibility for transformation. We will also integrate a discussion of the short film Huertos de Semillas, which shares experiences of young people working to strengthen family farming, and the democratization of knowledge and food sovereignty.
