Driven by inspiring stories from ordinary gardeners and seed-savers, The Seed Underground reminds us with a quiet urgency that while our underlying health, food security and sovereignty may be at stake as seeds disappear, so, too, are the stories, heritage and history that passes between people as seeds are passed from hand to hand.

Description

Details

Across the country, a renaissance of local food, farming and place-based culinary traditions is taking hold, yet something small, critically important, and profoundly at risk is being overlooked: seeds. Of the thousands of seed varieties available at the turn of the 20th century, 94 percent have been lost -- forever. Driven by inspiring stories from ordinary gardeners and seed-savers, The Seed Underground reminds us with a quiet urgency that while our underlying health, food security and sovereignty may be at stake as seeds disappear, so, too, are the stories, heritage and history that passes between people as seeds are passed from hand to hand. Copyright 2012, softcover, 240 pages.
