Seeds, the buried foundations of food and future-food are slowly disappearing. Environmental journalist Simran Sethi takes us beneath our plates to explore the erosion of what we grow and eat. Although she alludes to Monsanto's role in this process she avoids mentioning them by name.
Through an exploration of agricultural biodiversity, seed monocultures and consolidation, and the small-scale farmers who continue to grow much of the world's food, Simran explains what we all can do to ensure the security and sovereignty of our seed and food.
