Seeds of Hope

Environmental Short

Directed by Jon Bowermaster — Native Americans were once at home in the fertile Hudson Valley, but have long since moved to the far north, where cold seasons are long and land unprofitable for growing. Seeds of Hope looks at a unique partnership with Native American seed-savers who, in cooperation with a New York teaching farm, start a sanctuary to save some of its most at-risk seeds, as well as important culture and memory. From planting to harvest, the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe at Akwesasne, the Hudson Valley Farm Hub and Seedshed honor Native American seeds and their rich cultural heritage that are at risk of disappearing.
