‘Digging in the Dirt’ at 5:00 PM, features Taggart Siegel, talking about “Seed – The Untold Story, a new film from filmmakers Taggart Siegel, and Jon Betz.” We’re in the midst of a crisis of genetic diversity: we’ve lost over 94% of our vegetable seed varieties, leaving our food supply dangerously vulnerable to blight and famine. Chemical seed corporations only worsen this tenuous situation, blocking the genetic differentiation that keeps our crops healthy by patenting them. Thankfully, an inspiring ensemble of farmers, scientists, and seed savers works tirelessly to combine ancient stewardship with emerging science. “Seed” tells their story — and the larger history of human agriculture — with equal parts whimsy and rage.
