"Seed Savers Exchange" Vows to Preserve Heirloom Plants

An article in the Lawrence Journal-World looks at Kent Whealy and the Seed Savers Exchange, a network of argriculturalists whose mission is to preserve the diversity of plants.

According to Kent Whealy, whose Heritage Farm is the headquarters of the Seed Savers, the vast varieties of foods once available are dwindling. The Seed Savers Exchange, which now numbers 800, hopes to pass older plants along to their children by saving and sharing seeds now.
