GMOs, patenting and legal restrictions on farm-saved seed have made the seeds of our food crops a hotly contested and controversial topic – an issue that the 7th international agricultural biodiversity forum ‘Lets Liberate Diversity’ will tackle in Strathpeffer, near Inverness, from 9 to 11 March 2012.

Bringing together key organisations: the Scottish Crofting Federation, Garden Organic, the UK Food Group, Practical Action, and European and African partners, this year’s Highland location highlights the contribution Scottish crofters have made towards maintaining important local crop and vegetable varieties as well as rare breeds of native livestock. The forum is entitled “Celebrating Crofters Seeds and Breeds.”
