Seeds of Resistance: The Fight to Save Our Food Supply

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday September 20

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

An Eye-Opening Exposé of the Struggle to Control the World’s Seeds and the Future of our Food 

Ten thousand years after humans figured out how to stop wandering and plant crops, veteran investigative journalist Mark Schapiro plunges into the struggle already underway for control of seeds, the ground-zero ingredient for our food. Three quarters of the seed varieties on Earth in 1900 had become extinct by 2015. In Seeds of Resistance, Schapiro takes us onto the frontlines of a struggle over the seeds that remain, one that will determine the long-term security of our food supply in the face of unprecedented climate volatility.
