Cum Grano Salis

Forget about your perfect offer
There is a crack in everything
This is how the light comes in
(“Anthem,” Leonard Cohen)

📢 The expression Cum grano salis could be derived from the Naturalis Historia of Plinus the Elder. Literally
translated as “with a grain of salt,” has taken on a broad allegorical meaning of “with a pinch of common sense,””using your head”
Seed Vicious has been committed to the preservation of biodiversity🌽🥕🍅🍓🍆🥭🍒🍐 for years. Ours is a work that looks to the future, to new generations. We are aware that we need to use “the head” to be clear about the idea of active seed-based resistance.

➡ We therefore invite you to attend CUM GRANO SALIS on July 1 at 4 pm. We will have a chance to meet Salvatore Ceccarelli and Stefania Grando. With them we will talk about
🧑🏻‍🌾 food sovereignty, evolutionary population, new breeding technology (NBT), biodiversity and health. A panel discussion will follow at the end of the conference
with interventions by Italian seedsavers regarding the current situation of the Seed Keeper Movement.
➡ The next day, July 2, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. there will be FREE SEEDING, a day dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity and free trade
of reproducible seeds and seedlings with seedsavers from all over Italy. There will be moments of conviviality with the sharing of typical dishes of our tradition.
It is possible to stay overnight at the Castellina or in nearby hotels. Ample space for tent or RV accommodation near the farmhouse.
