On 27 July 2018 The Hindu reported: The second Auroville Seed Festival happening on Saturday (28 July) at the Bharat Nivas in the universal township. It will simultaneously be a celebration of traditional seed varieties, local farming communities and organic agricultural practices. The event will showcase over 350 traditional varieties and will be hosted by the Sustainable Livelihood Institute (SLI), Auroville. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The event will have 27 stalls, more than half of them dedicated to traditional seeds. Apart from seeds, the stalls will have organic produce, organic cotton textiles, bio-inputs, publications on organic farming and eco-friendly products. Separate events for students and a special seminar involving experts on recent trends in sustainable livelihoods are part of the programme.

The festival is returning for a second edition after the maiden event last year was a resounding success with the participation of seed savers (those who conserve and multiply traditional seeds, including rare varieties) and farmers from Cuddalore, Villupuram, Tiruchi, and Auroville. The first edition featured about 300 varieties of traditional seeds, including paddy, vegetables, millets, and indigenous trees, were put up for sale.
