There is a quietly growing revolution to save our food. In our corporate-industrial complex, nothing has become as subversive as the simple act of saving seeds.

In the face of new discoveries about modern wheat (a hybrid, not a GMO) and GMO corn, this is likely the only reasonable response to our insane world

There is an actual movement of saving all plant seeds, not just food seeds. As far as I know, the project is still underway, much as is the salvaging of DNA from as many species as possible.

The scientists, seem to realize something we haven't yet.

Heidi, you may be thinking of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, sometimes referred to as the Doomsday Project, in Norway. As of 2012, the Vault had samples of 750,000 distinct species.

I've heard of a seed saving project which is probably the one Brian M. has mentioned. Good job somebody had the great sense to think of doing this.
I love the photo, by the way.
