"Seed Savers Exchange - Saving The Planet By Saving Seeds" - On an 890–acre farm in Iowa, the horticultural heritage of America is being preserved one seed at a time. The Seed Savers Exchange, a non–profit, member-supported organization, uses this farm to save and share the heirloom seeds of our garden heritage, creating a living legacy that can be passed on to future generations.

Viewers will learn how to save seeds from their own garden and will better understand the importance of doing so. Chef Nathan uses fresh garlic to create a wonderful Italian pasta puttanesca.
