August 25, 2014 0 Comments

In taking forward the open source seed systems initiative we had a small group meeting on Open Source Seed Systems in RIS Habitat Centre in Delhi last month with Ravi Srinivas who is author of one of first paper on open source seed systems. At that meeting we had decided it to follow up on the subject again this month. It took us some time to finalise the hosts and venue for the meeting. We have been able to tie up the same now. The venue is Institute of Studies in Industrial Development 4 Institutional Area Vasant Kunj New Delhi-70. This place is next to TERI UNIVERSITY, Vasant Kunj behind the new malls on Nelson Mandella Marg. The other landmark is the Grand Hotel. We are going to send you tentative Programme in terms of sessions by Monday.

This meeting is jointly organised by Centre for Sustainable Agriculture (CSA),

Institute of Studies in Industrial Development (ISID), Alliance for Sustainable and Holistic Agriculture (ASHA), All India Peoples’ Science Network (AIPSN), Indian Society for Agro-Ecology (ISAE).

However you may note that the meeting on August 30 will continue up to 6.00 pm. We will meet again in the morning on August 31 Sunday for half day to finalise the experimental field sites. Please spare your valuable time for this meeting on Sunday Morning as well. The Sunday meeting will also be a launch of Indian Society of Agroecology.
