The seed underground : a growing revolution to save food by Janisse Ray (363.83 R263) is a fascinating new book which  discusses the loss of fruit and vegetable varieties and the genetically modified industrial monocultures being used today. It shares the author’s personal experiences growing, saving, and swapping seeds, and deconstructs the politics and genetics of seeds.  With the current focus on agricultural trends, and especially urban agriculture, this is a timely and very relevant read.
