Farmers from Iran attended the international gathering, “Maisons des semences” to exchange their know-how with farmers and small seed producers from France, Europe and other continents. The meeting included a seed fair, and was followed by a field trip to a local community controlled organic seed cooperative and a full-day local agricultural biodiversity festival.
An interview (in French) with farmer Abdol Reza Biglari can be found here in Basta! (16 October 2012).
The final report of the gathering – in the form of a journal – can be downloaded here:
