Conserving seed diversity to ensure non-GMO, democractic future for life

As we're surrounded by agri-business, it is great to see that efforts are being made across the world to try and preserve the biodiversity that has been handed to us by farmers doing their own testing and growing over thousands of years.

Even if you don't buy organic, try to buy from a local farmer who uses non-GMO seeds.
