Seed banks will be our saving grace one day. If you are a gardner, make sure you save your seeds too... refrigerate them wrapped in tissue paper (so they dry and do not go mouldy (it will make them dormant until needed again).

Don't forget to dry your seeds in the sunlight for a couple of days before wrapping and freezing. One day soon we will be sorry if we have no seeds that are not GMO.

Good on Mr Fowler. .and isn't Bill Gates doing the exact same thing somewhere in the Barents Sea?

Noted and enjoyed the video. I have been saving seeds for a very long time and have passed some on, but always keeping some for myself. There are a lot of different flowers that are edible. I have not yet tried to save grain seeds, which I might, as there is a farmer's field just about 200' from my backyard.
Thanks Cher.

Seeds are marvels. We need seeds saved and planted and saved all over the world. The centralized deep freeze is one tactic, but seed saving is one of humanity's great learnings.
