Protect and promote seed diversity

We need variety in crops, vegetables and fruits. Seeds are a resource – genetic, cultural, historical, nutritional – that will never return if varieties are ‘regulated’ off the land. European Coordination Via Campesina tells us some of what’s been happening recently about seeds.

Save Our Seeds urges us to sign this petition about seeds.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
