New Video: What's So Special About Organic Seed? 

Did you know that conventional seeds are often sprayed with more pesticides than the vegetables they come from? While in Port Townsend, Washington, we stopped at the Organic Seed Alliance headquarters to talk with researcher and seed geneticist John Navazio. He brought us to Nash Organic Produce Farm where he's working to breed healthy and robust organic spinach varieties. In this video, John explains why organic seed is important and why you can't just sow any seed for a healthy crop!

If you're having trouble with the video player above, try viewing it on YouTube. And to view more photos from our travels, head over to our Flickr page.
