Something as small as a seed can have a worldwide impact. Did you know there are top-secret seed vaults hidden throughout the world? And once a seed disappears, that’s it—it’s gone forever? With the growth of genetically modified foods, the use of many seeds is dwindling—of 80,000 edible plants, only about 150 are being cultivated. With a global cast of men and women, scientists and laypeople, and photographic documentation, Nancy Castaldo chronicles where our food comes from, and where it is going as she digs deeper into the importance of seeds in our world.

The Story Of Seeds was a fascinating and inspirational read, unlocking the past while also giving us a glimpse into the future of our food. This easy to read text was loaded with unsung heroes, easily digestible information, passion, hope and a plan for the future. This should be a staple in all middle school and high school libraries.
