Open Sesame, helps us learn what’s at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all our food: SEEDS. While the price of gold and oil skyrocket, the fate of our most precious commodity is being ignored. Large corporations such as Monsanto are quietly patenting increasing numbers of seed varieties so that, what had traditionally been our common heritage--a shared resource--has steadily shifted into private ownership. Today, corporate-owned seed accounts for 82% of the global market. Sponsored by:
