Seeding the Future

Children at a school in the tough suburb of Rocklands on the Cape Flats, where gang warfare is rife, are taught how to save seeds in a permaculture garden at their school. The beautiful Tania, not only nurtures the plants and the soil and collects the seeds, but she is a mentor and a mother to the children who come to her at break time to spend their pocket money on seeds for their grandmothers window box. This film was a collaboration between filmmaker Justin Wong and Helena Kingwill.
