Your response might win you two free tickets to Seeds, a show presented this Spring at the Carlsen Center at Johnson County Community College. Seeds is a dramatic reenactment of the seven-year battle between a Saskatchewan farmer and biotech corporation Monsanto Inc. This documentary play leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific debates about genetically modified food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotech industry.
