Краткое описание

Seedtime: On the History, Husbandry, Politics, and Promise of Seeds.

It's hard to think of a subject more fundamental to the sustenance of the human race than seeds—nor one more vital, as genetically modified products and loss of biodiversity threaten the future of seed-cultivated plants and agriculture. Scott Chaskey—author of This Common Ground: Seasons on an Organic Farm—is also a poet, educator, and pioneer of the community farming movement, working the land for the Peconic Land Trust in Amagansett, New York. Here he explores the mystery and politics of seeds, from the breeding experiments of Gregor Mendel, which yielded our modern understanding of genetics, to the work of such "bioneers" as geobotanist Nikolay Vavilov and agriculturalist Cary Fowler, who are preserving global biodiversity through seeds. Weaving history, botany, literature, mythology, and memoir, Chaskey's book is a celebration as well as a call to action urging us to renew our role as "citizens of nature," in ecologist Aldo Leopold's phrase, not as conquerors of it. "An ode to the seed from a farmer who is as gifted in the field as he is on paper."—Anna Lappé
