Project Description

Cary Fowler: ‘One seed at a time, protecting the future of food’

The wheat, corn and rice we grow today may not thrive in a future threatened by climate change. Cary Fowler takes us inside the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a vast treasury buried within a frozen mountain in Norway, that stores a diverse group of food-crop seeds … for whatever tomorrow may bring.
