Hi [First Name],
Today, 94% of our seed diversity has disappeared. Our industrial food system relies heavily on monocultures, agrochemicals, patented seeds, and GMO seeds. Of the 6,000 plant species cultivated for food worldwide only nine account for the majority of total crop production, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.
Thankfully, home gardeners, farmers, growers, and anyone who eats food can be part of the solution to save seeds and that is exactly what the Future of Food Summit shares!
>> Starting on Friday, November 4, 2022, you can watch the Future of Food Summit for free (for 4 days).
During this epic 4-day Summit, you’ll watch over a dozen conversations from food and garden experts including New York Times best-selling authors, activists, award-winning filmmakers, doctors, market gardeners, farmers, and more including:
Vandana Shiva, Founder of Navdanya Research Foundation for Science, shares how critical biodiversity is for the future of food.
Rowen White, Founder of Sierra Seeds and Board Member of Seed Savers Exchange, discusses the importance of seed stewardship and food sovereignty.
Mara Welton, Slow Food USA's Director of Programs, speaks about the Ark of Taste living catalog of rare foods in danger of going extinct.

Why should you care about the future of seeds? A decrease in seed diversity equals:
A decrease in the diversity of food available. Over six thousand different plants were once consumed by human beings, but only nine plant species remain major staples today.
An increased risk of famine. The consolidation of our food decreases its resilience to climate change, pests, and parasites. Monocultures, the mass production of one crop variety threatens our health and planet.
A decrease in human health. Over the past 50 years, human dietary choices have dramatically narrowed. Eating a wide diversity of foods is essential to prevent disease, intake the full spectrum of nutrients and maintain a healthy gut microbiome.
A decrease in seed freedom. Just four corporations primarily control all of the seeds distributed on the planet. Genetic engineering and patents are taking away farmers' seed freedoms. Humans depend on seeds for most of the world’s food supply.
A decrease in food traditions. When we lose seed diversity we lose traditional foodways, flavors, smells, and culinary and cultural traditions that we may never reclaim.
An increase in dependence on pesticides. Monoculture crops are more likely to be affected by blight or pests, as these threats can move faster through the area due to its reduced biodiversity.
An increase in dependence on fertilizers. As growing only one kind of plant on the same piece of farmland depletes and exhausts the soil by depriving it of biodiversity, farmers artificially boost the fertility of their fields by applying chemical fertilizers.
If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by what’s going on with GMOs or the heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers, the Future of Food Summit invites you to be a part of the seed revolution!
