In 2011, farmers of the Fair Trade Alliance Kerala FTAK came together to host the very first seed fest. Four years later, it has become an event for farmers from the region to assess seed diversity and promote food security by sharing knowledge, exchanging seeds and displaying their products. To excite as many farmers as possible of the region Seed Swaraj Yatra, a seed sovereignty procession is organized prior to the event. During four days the fest committee is passing through the region of farmers in Kasargode, Wayanad and Kannur districts and holds public meetings. When the procession passed through Francis’ area, he took some pictures that are shown below. If your interest is now awakened, gaze at many more proud farmers pictures on FTAK’s facebook side.
