In Memory of José Santos "Chepe" Hernández

With heavy hearts we received news that José Santos "Chepe" Hernández, a farmer-breeder who collaborated extensively with our Honduran program, passed away last month.
Originally published on The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation's blog. The future of food will be dictated by climate and weather patterns that will be different than any farmers have yet experienced, and which are now unpreventable. Climate change will affect different geographical regions in different ways, but the common factor is that the weather will not just be warmer; it will be more variable and unpredictable.
Why save seeds? Let some seedy people from Cumberland Food Action Network tell you why they do.
