Sow Much Love Campaign

Date: 
Sun, 2015-03-15 13:00 - 15:00
Development and Peace

Development and Peace, the official development organization of the Canadian Catholic Church, is inspired by the values of the Gospel, particularly "the preferential option for the poor." 

Sow Much Love is Development & Peace’s campaign to support poor, small scale farmers as they select, exchange and plant their own seeds. These farmers, often women, resist being extorted to plant seeds controlled, patented, and licensed by multinational corporations. 

You are invited to read the Development & Peace Action Sheets and Prayer Cards as they appear in the Bulletin.

On March 14/15 after each of the Masses, there will be an opportunity to sign a petition urging the Canadian government to protect the right of farmers to use, preserve and exchange their own seeds. 

On Sunday March 15 at 12:45 pm in The Library there will be a screening of the Seed Freedom video, followed by discussion of the issues it raises.  All are welcome, so please join us and learn more about what we can each do to ensure Seed Sovereignty!

Development & Peace's video resources for the Sow Much Love campaign can be found on its website here and other Development & Peace resources for this campaign can be found on the DEVP site here.
