LLD 2012 - Celebrating crofters seeds & breeds: 9th to 11th March 2012


The Let's Liberate Diversity forum is an annual gathering of farmers and associations from all across Europe. The event is being organised by the European Coordination of Let's Liberate Diversity in conjunction with the Scottish Crofting Federation, Heritage Seed Library/Garden Organic, Practical Action and other members of the UK food group. The next forum is the seventh and the Scottish Crofting Federation will be hosting this event in conjunction with the Crofters Annual Gathering.

The theme of next year's forum is Celebrating Crofters' Seeds and Breeds and we will be looking at how these contribute to sustainable land use, agricultural biodiversity and the high nature value of the crofting counties.

The draft programme includes presentations on Crofting Culture, the Rare Breeds National Action Plan, Running a Heritage Croft, Native Breeds, native crop varieties, a poster exhibition, seed exchange and film festival. A variety of workshops, including Food sovereignty, Sustainable Food, Land Tenure, Potato Diversity in Scotland, Farmers Rights and EU legislation on Seeds, will allow small farmers from across Europe to discuss common interests.

Farmers' seeds: the revolution of tradition

Créer un mouvement international de jeunes prêts à s'impliquer et prendre des mesures pour reconquérir la souveraineté des paysans sur la conservation et la reproduction de semences. Cette souveraineté est en effet une condition préalable à la reconnaissance du rôle social et culturel de l'agriculture, de l'expérience sur le terrain jusqu’au niveau politique.
