This work helps seed sovereignty by means of the completely different initiatives she’s labored on on the native, nationwide, and worldwide scales.
She’ll have a look at the significance of in situ (in place) seed banking and of ex situ (chilly storage) seed saving methods. Each of those strategies are necessary for safeguarding seed biodiversity of our wild and cultivated lands. Save seeds – seeds save!
