Londoners are rising to the challenges of climate change, food poverty, entrenched inequality and our nation’s mental and physical health crises by reviving one of the oldest human activities of all- sowing, saving and sharing seeds.
The Gaia Foundation’s short film, A Quiet Revolution, profiles London’s urban seed and food growers who are members of the London Freedom Seed Bank, a network of more than 72 growers caring for over 120 seed varieties, many of which are rapidly adapting to London's unique growing conditions.
Produced by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Andy Pilsbury, the 8-minute film gives growers and community activists a platform to share their work and explain why urban seed and food networks, and the green spaces they maintain, matter to so many Londoners.
