How will we Feed Everyone?!
Scientists estimate there will be 9 billion people on the planet by 2050; feeding them won’t be an easy task. Farmers already struggle with erratic weather patterns, decreasing fresh water supplies, and degraded soils.
Through our Seeds of Survival program, however, farmers and scientists are already working side-by-side, testing practical, low-cost solutions to overcome these challenges. The farmers we support are rolling up their sleeves and figuring out how to get it done.
We hope you’ll enjoy reading some of their stories in this year’s issue of Jottings newsletter: How to Feed the world.
Seedmap.org is Here!
Seedmap.org is a terrific new resource – an online portal on seeds, biodiversity, and food – packed with information about where our food comes.
The heart of Seedmap.org is an interactive map that lets you visit hundreds of case studies around the world where agricultural biodiversity originated, is threatened, and where people are working to safeguard it. Check it out!
