In addition to being National Food Day, October 24th is also the official United Nations Day and, as a counter to this events irrelevance to human interests as well as the ongoing malpractices of groups like Monsanto; OH Sustainability Work Group, in solidarity with Occupy movements everywhere, is helping to host an International Seed Dispersal!Information regarding crops most likely to do well in your region will be made available, here, beforehand allowing each Occupy or affinity group to decide their own specifics on dispersing: whether it be along major highways, country roads or within neighborhoods or at a local farm or garden.This event also seeks to be part of the answer to the vision of “local food production, community gardens, & permaculture agriculture” as seen in the visioning session results of NATGAT!This Earth belongs to us, and it’s time we reclaim it! Redistribute far and wide!!!

Stay tuned for more updates and conference call times.
