Not-for-profit FTAK organises Seed Festival

Kannur: Fair Trade Alliance Kerala organised Vithulsavam-2016 {Seed Festival} at Karuvanchal to celebrate the ‘magic of seeds’. 20 stalls displayed all sorts of seeds, indigenous livestock, medicinal plants, wild trees and traditional farming implements. FTAK, an organisation of small holder farmers is part of the largest indigenous seed preservation effort in the Western Ghats. The history of immigration to Malabar more than half-a-century ago, was traced through exhibitions, light-and-sound shows, audio-visual presentations and folk arts. Delegates from France, Italy, Switzerland, UK, Peru, Mexico and Australia participated in the round table programme.
