Green Action Week Participants Reclaim Indigenous Seed and Knowledge

When we lose indigenous and local varieties of food and seed, we also lose the knowledge and cultural identity associated with it. Local and indigenous varieties tend to be more resilient to climate change, are increasingly being recognised as having higher nutritional value, and are embedded into many social and community rituals. Several Green Action Week participants used their campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of these varieties, often showcasing ways to prepare and cook them.
