The May/June issue of 'Organic Gardener' magazine has an article by Simon Webster reporting on 'how industrial agriculture has led to a dramatic erosion of the world's seed diversity and how we can fight back'.
The article refers to the fast rate of disappearing seeds -
"In the century leading up to the year 2000, the world lost 75% of the genetic diversity of its agricultural crops".
I urge you to read the article,which includes alarming statistics about ownership of seeds, and you will see that it includes a photo of Bellingen Seed Savers hard at work identifying seeds.
