Ensuring Genetic Diversity
In this extended interview heritage gardener Derek Craig talks about the loss of genetic diversity of fruit grown in New Zealand in the last 50-years and discusses how the commercialisation of food production has reduced nutritional benefits from fruit, and divorced many people from the knowledge of where their food comes from. However he points out that hope can be found in community groups and families that are rediscovering the value of growing their own food together, locally.
