The Seed Map – Food, Farmers and Climatic Chaos

March 16th, 2009

The Seed Map  is a teaching and advocacy tool that shows the state of global agro-biodiversity today. It identifies key threats to the world’s seed and biodiversity systems, particularly the impact of climate change, and highlights regions where institutions and peoples’ movements are working to preserve agricultural biodiversity.We all want to know where our food comes from, but the Seed Map will tell you where it REALLY came from by mapping out the ‘Centres of Origin’ of commonly eaten foods. It’s an engaging way to learn about global agriculture and food production.
