Event Details:

Join the R&DE Sustainable Food Program for an intimate lunch discussion with Mark Schapiro, the author of Seeds of Resistance and a number of other books. Seeds of Resistance is an expose of the high-stakes battle underway for control of the world’s seeds as climate volatility threatens the security of our food supply. Three-quarters of the seed varieties on earth in 1900 are now extinct. Mark investigates what it means that more than half of the commercial seeds which remain are owned by three agri-chemical companies. He tells colorful and surprising stories from the global movement that is defying the companies and offering alternatives capable of surviving the accelerating climatic changes.

Space is limited. We will confirm and send more details. Lunch is included as are some seeds to start your own garden! Co-sponsored by the O'Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm.
