100 Years of Plenty

Working for a Biodiverse, Biodelicious Future


Did you know that throughout human history, 7,000 crops have been cultivated for human consumption; but today, a paltry 30 crops provide 95% of the food we consume? We lament the disappearance of small farms, vanished varietals, and mouth-watering flavors ceded to generic blandness.

But we can eat different and resist same. Join us in our #100YearsofPlenty fundraising campaign. Together, we can reverse the tide of food and agricultural losses that defined the last century. Make a donation today, explore the Ark of Taste catalog, or post photos of your heirloom tomatoes or rare seeds on social media using #100YearsofPlenty.

Slow Regards,

What will the next US President do for food?

"Although most presidential candidates have been slow to address the problems within our food system, an overwhelming bipartisan majority of voters want to see change."  

The Plate of the Union's Michael Lavender writes on our blog, on behalf of the Food Policy Action, Food Policy Action Education Fund, the Union of Concerned Scientists, and the HEAL Food Alliance. Read more and make your voice heard.
