The Best Of Our Knowledge #1200
Remember the story of Johnny Appleseed...the man who legend says roaming the country planting his seeds wherever he went? Well, Janisse Ray isn’t roaming the country planting seeds; she’s touring colleges and universities talking about the importance of saving different varieties of seeds before they are lost forever. Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear from Janisse about The Seed Underground.
We’ll also hear about a group of students that call themselves the Hacker Scouts who are learning a lot about making things with their own hands. And we’ll spend an academic minute in the world of farms and bees.
