CBL SPECIAL: Organic Passion for the Native Seed with Dr. Vandana Shiva

Friday, September 16th, 2011

Dr. Vandana Shiva is Coach Betty's honored guest on this CBL Special Podcast edition. It was a thrill and pleasure to interview the Queen of the "Native Seed" Movement. Dr. Shiva, visiting from India, spoke to an audience filled with fans and supporters at Dominican University in San Rafael, California on Wednesday evening.  Her opening remarks were, "There is so much to celebrate, but we are in a mess."

Her passionate message focuses on banning all chemical fertilizers and returning to organic gardening and the native seed. Her view is that the native seed is going through a holocaust as Corporations are controlling seed supply.  Over 250,000 Indian Farmers have committed suicide because of large indebtedness to these Corporations. Her call to action was directed at each individual as she said, "Things change because the fear disappears." Dr. Shiva urged women to take back the control of food for the future of our planet.

She has recently been named one of the 7 most influential women in the world by Forbes Magazine. Click on her name below for this 8 minute interview.

Vandana Shiva

One of the world's most renowned environmentalists, Dr. Vandana Shiva is the founder of Navdanya, an international movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources, especially native seeds, and the promotion of organic farming and fair trade. A global thinker, scientist and acclaimed author on the issues of food access, production and distribution, Dr. Shiva sits on the National Board of Organic Standards of India and Prince Charles panel of experts on Sustainable Agriculture, and also chairs the Commission on the Future of Food in Italy.

Trained as a Physicist with a Ph.D. on the subject of Hidden Variables and Non-locality in Quantum Theory from the University of Western Ontario in Canada, Dr. Shiva has received honorary Doctorates from University of Paris, University of Western Ontario, University of Oslo and Connecticut College. In 2003 she was named an environmental her by Time Magazine.
