9th Festa da Semente 2020
The 9th edition of the Festa da Semente – the Seed Fest – will happen on February 8, 2020, in Vale de Santiago (Odemira region).
The Festa da Semente is a regional gathering that focuses on seed exchange and on sharing knowledge around the topic of producing seeds and growing plants. It is an important annual meeting and exchange space of local projects, communities and the international community in the region of Odemira.
Besides the opportunity to exchange seeds, there will be a sharing circle, guided conversations, and the local market! We will have a beautiful room for children and parents with some activities.
The Festa da Semente was hosted for 8 years at Sao Martinho das Amoreiras with the support of the parish council of the village. This year, in 2020, the Festa moves to Vale de Santiago and will take place in partnership with the Escola de Vida (School of Life) Project.
The organizers and ‘seed guardians’ of the Festa 2020 are Lilian, Pat, and Rita.
The Festa da Semente 2020 will give an update on the Regional Seed Network, that was started in 2019. Another topic will be the idea of Forest Seeds and Agroforestry with the support of a network of experts in the region. The full program will be released soon by the organizers.
Save this date because, without you, the Festa da Semente makes no sense.
