Seeds are the beginning of everything. They are a gift from nature. They cannot be the property of a few. This is the only way to save the biodiversity that feeds the world.
But to continue to ensure this future, we must take care of the seeds, questioning ourselves on their origin – just as we do with a vegetable, a packet of pasta, a steak – and, if we are really good, we can even commit ourselves to reproduce new seeds from year to year without buying them, but raising the plants that produce them in our garden. On a broader level, we need to work to foster and promote research and breeding programs that provide our farmers with reproducible seeds suitable for organic farming.
