One of the big highlights 2017 has been on 26th of July when SLI organized its first Seed Festival. On this occasion, there were more than 20 seed savers from across Tamil Nadu and around 300 varieties of traditional seeds. Students from many different schools in and around Auroville learned about the local flora and diversity in various presentations while seed exchange happened all day. The festival further included talks, exhibition of seeds and knowledge exchange sessions. 
This year, SLI is aiming to repeat the huge success of the Seed Festival on Saturday, the 28th of July.
