Seeds, a contemporary Canadian play, has just opened at Neptune Theatre, and might be of interest to some of you! It is a docudrama about the battle between Percy Schmeiser (played by Eric Peterson from Corner Gas) and Monsanto, but the play also explores the larger issues surrounding genetically modified (GM) food. Based on court records and interviews, the play investigates the complex dimensions of the science surrounding genetic modification while allowing for multiple perspectives on the issue.
The play runs from September 12 to October 1, 2017.

ESS Fall Lecture Series – 2017 – Paul Greenberg – SEP 14 2017
Paul Greenberg is a bestselling American author focusing on ocean and environmental issues. His 2014 book American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood examined the odd fact that while the US controls more ocean than any country on earth it imports more than 85% of its seafood from other countries. His 2010 bestseller Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food won the 2011 James Beard Award for writing and literature. Many of the themes in Four Fish were later explored in a 2017 Frontline PBS documentary Greenberg anchored and co-wrote called The Fish On My Plate. Paul’s 2015 TED Talk has received over a million views. He has been a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation and a W.K. Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Policy Fellow.
