A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds. In the face of climate change and a growing world population, SEEDS OF TIME follows Fowler in his race against time to save some of Earth’s most precious resources: seeds. For more than 30 years, Fowler has led a distinguished career in conservation and use of crop diversity. Academy Award-nominated director Sandy McLeod (ASYLUM) joins us to talk about a looming worldwide crisis and the potential for a viable alternative.
