Seeds the Buried Beginnings of Food – Semran Sethi

“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. 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.”

Urban Gleaners: Reducing Food Waste to Reduce Hunger

“A simple idea that came out of hearing a story on the radio. For Tracy Oseran, it was something she had to do: help find and distribute food that would otherwise be thrown out — perfectly edible food—from supermarkets, farmer’s markets, events, and restaurants, and deliver that food to agencies and schools that work directly with those facing food insecurity and hunger concerns.
