Your Call 122508 How do we save seeds?

What's the best way to go about preserving seeds and crop diversity? On the next Your Call, we'll replay a conversation we had about seeds and the Global Seed Vault. The vault was designed to protect the seeds that are essential to food production, but critics say the only way to truly preserve seeds in their natural form is to involve farmers. How can we guarantee that the food we eat today will be available for future generations? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests: Brewster Kneen, farmer, scholar, and publisher of the Ram's Horn, a monthly journal of food systems analysis

Claire Hope Cummings, author of Uncertain Peril: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds
