Seed diversity has diminished at an alarming rate. This episode of La semaine verte delves into how folks around the world are safeguarding what's left.

This internationally award winning series features our own Executive Director, Jane Rabinowicz and some of the work of farmers in our Seeds of Survival program in Canada.

The program also takes us to the international seed bank in Svalbard, Norway - also known as the "Doomsday" seed vault. It investigates who control seeds in the world, questions why and how we have come to lose so much agricultural biodiversity - and, most important, gives us insights about what we can do about it.
