Abstract:
Cricket Rakita and Dr. Lee Barnes of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association believe that vegetable diversity is under threat. As large seed companies buy up smaller seed companies and patent the seeds or genetically alter them, fewer varieties are being grown. With fewer varities of vegetables grown, certain types of heritage vegetables are lost along with their history. Rakita and Barnes discuss the importance of saving seeds to protect diversity, especially the heritage of the Southeast.

Abstract:
Cruze discusses Wake County's only organic farmer and the Eastern Carolina Organics (ECO) program. Fred Miller, a former office equipment salesman, runs Wake County's only certified organic farm, Hilltop Farm. He and his wife own thirty acres on which they grow strawberries, potatoes, bok choy, and roma tomatoes. The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association started ECO to help new organic farmers and organic tobacco farmers grow more produce. Many organic farmers sell at food stands. ECO encourages them to focus on other areas, including natural food stores, co-ops, and restaurants.
