Episode Description:

Plant breeder Carol Deppe is passionate about making seeds available for all growers, rather than being in the control of a handful of corporations. “If we want to control the kind of food available and the kind of agricultural system that we want, we have to do our own breeding,” she explains. “What Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) does is create a pool, a protected commons, of germ plasm which will always be available for breeding. The OSSI pledge goes along with these seed varieties, but also if you breed new varieties. So it’s an ever-expanding pool of seed.” OSSI frees the seed, guaranteeing the rights of farmers and gardeners to save and replant seed for many generations. Don’t miss Carol’s catchy lyrics in the song at the end! []
