From Seed to Seed follows a small-scale organic farming family, as well as a diverse group of Canadian farmers, for a season of challenges and rewards.  Terry and Monique pursue their true passion of ecologically sustainable farming practices, and their story of community and resilience takes center stage in this film.

Scientists are working with these farmers using a blend of ancient traditions and cutting edge science to develop improved methods for growing food ecologically and in a changing climate.  This hopeful and award-winning story from Katharina Stieffenhofer provides one perspective on a global social movement towards healthy and regenerative farming practices.

Farming the Sky is a short film that features architect Nona Yehia, who designed a new kind of greenhouse in her hometown of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The building packs a perfectly controlled growing environment into a vertical space located on a sliver of land, the first of its kind in the northern hemisphere. This urban farm provides the local community with super-fresh produce, no matter the weather.

Meet the Filmmaker of From Seed to Seed



Katharina Stieffenhofer is a filmmaker and a “passionate and compulsive seed saver”. Her appreciation of farming and love of Nature is rooted in her childhood and youth growing up on a mixed family farm on a Rhine island in Germany and expanded when her parents immigrated to Canada to become grain farmers in Southern Manitoba. She continues to manage several gardens near her home, growing tomatoes, herbs, and peppers. “From Seed to Seed” was a labor of love, and she’s currently researching her next film project when not fermenting tomato seeds.

You’re invited to submit questions for the filmmaker below, and add any comments if you wish.  Please note it takes a couple of seconds for your comment to be received, so thank you in advance for your patience!
