"Genetic diversity is the hedge between us and global famine." — Will Bonsall⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How much do you worry about our food supply as soils become depleted and the climate changes? 🍏🌽🥦⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maintaining crop and seed diversity is one way we can help to ensure a cornucopia of food as things shift. This is the work of Will Bonsall—a veganic*, subsistence farmer who lives in Maine and heads up the Scatterseed Project; his effort toward collecting, propagating, and distributing seeds.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Will shares his farming techniques—a mix of old and new-timey methods—in his book: Will Bonsall’s Essential Guide to Radical Self-Reliant Gardening. I recommend it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo still from the film SEED: The Untold Story by award-winning filmmakers Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz.
