Rupa & the April Fishes

Music tour meets seed exchange

Nov 8, 2012

Rupa Marya, lead singer of local band Rupa & The April Fishes, is in the middle of an international tour, but it’s about way more than her music:

RUPA MARYA: We are conducting a seed exchange around the world, so we are taking a suitcase full of heirloom treasures that belong to life, belong to the commons. They are not for sale they are for exchange. So the first ten farmers that show up at our show with seeds that they saved to exchange can get in for free.
