Don’t miss a thought-provoking film on climate change and global food security as part of NYBG’s Earth Day celebration this Friday.
The film, Seeds of Time, follows agricultural pioneer Cary Fowler’s passionate race against time to protect the future of our food supply in the face of decreasing biodiversity. His journey takes him from Rome to Russia, to Peru and the Philippines, and finally, to an underground vault in the Norwegian Arctic that may hold the key to saving the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.
After the screening, join Cary Fowler and Academy Award-nominated director Sandy McLeod for a fascinating discussion of important issues raised in the film.
