The United Nations estimates 75% of crop varieties have disappeared since 1900. This shrinkage echoes through our food chain and strips crops, livestock and aquatic life of their ability to adapt to changes in the environment, putting our food supply at risk. Environmentalist Simran Sethi details this loss of agrobiodiversity and highlights solutions that are innovative, compelling and delicious.
Adelaide Festival of Ideas session, Freemasons Main Hall, 10:00 am, Saturday 19th October, 2013. Chaired by Robert Phiddian.
