Movie on seed saving

Industrial agriculture has decimated our plant diversity. But some people are fighting back, saving seeds from year to year, developing varieties that suit their location. With climate change, it will be important to have a diverse gene pool to pull from and let evolution guide us.

Did you know there's a seed library in the Verde Valley? And Verde Valley School has been collecting seeds from their best farm plants for years. If you have a garden at home, you can do this too. Why pay for seeds when your own garden provides seed that suits your microclimate? Maybe this movie will inspire you...
