The 7th edition of SeedBroadcast Journal includes a story on Tse Daa K'aan Lifelong Learning Community (TDK). The article was a included as part of a year-long series of visits and interviews with four regional farmers through the "Seed Climate Change Resilience" initiative made possible in partnership with Native Seeds SEARCH and the Robert Rauschenberg Climate Change Solutions Fund. In May 2016, Chrissie Orr and Jeanette Hart-Mann from SeedBroadcast joined us at TDK during a week of service and learning with students from Fordham University in New York City who volunteered to assist with farmwork at TDK which included interventions implemented in the aftermath of the Gold King mine toxic waste spill last summer such as swale and drip irrigation repair, hand-watering, and natural filtration pond development. SeedBroadcast is a collaborative project exploring bioregional agri-Culture and seed action through collective inquiries and hands-on creative practices. SeedBroadcast holds the belief that it is a human right to save seeds and share their gifts, to grow food and share its abundance, and to cultivate grassroots wisdom and share its creativity.
SeedBroadcast encourages communities to keep agri-Culture alive and vibrant through working together in creative and inspiring ways. Spending time with people on their farms and in their gardens, at seed exchanges and community gatherings, SeedBroadcast digs deep into the oft-unheard stories of local agri-Culture. Our work includes community-based projects, installations, dialogues, creative actions, and cross-country tours with the Mobile Seed Story Broadcasting Station. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a founding principal of SeedBroadcast activities where cohorts from diverse backgrounds work together as critical partners of inquiry and creative production.
