Today on Your Call: What is at stake with the loss of seed biodiversity?
On today's Your Call we’ll have a conversation with Janisse Ray, author of “The Seed Underground: A Growing Revolution to Save Food.” Of the thousands of seed varieties available at the turn of the 20th century, 94 percent have been lost — forever. “And the less biodiverse any system is,” says Ray, “the greater the potential for its collapse.” So how can we save the seeds we have left? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here. What is your relationship to seeds? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
