Bay Area Bountiful

Saving Heirlooms: Honey Bees, Seed Banks and Crop Diversity

This segment of North Bay Bountiful travels to Petaluma’s Seed Bank, one of an increasing number of providers of heirloom seeds for gardeners desiring a wider diversity of feedstock and a re-connection with our agricultural roots. From Petaluma, the program travels on to Point Reyes, where beekeeper Kevin Forrester builds eco-friendly hives, and then finally to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway which stores an extensive collection of plant seed samples representing the world’s crop diversity.
