Around 10,000 years ago, human populations embraced agriculture, embarking on a path of fundamental social and environmental transformation. 10 millennia later, food security across the globe is threatened by diminishing crop diversity, new diseases and the effects of climate change.

Can we future-proof global food production?

Crop diversity pioneer Cary Folwer believes we can – if we act now. Battling natural disasters and international bureaucracy, he has set out on a race to protect the one resource we can’t do without: our seeds. Seeds of Time follows Fowler on his impassioned journey to re-invent a global food system that can “live forever”.
