If you’ve visited http://www.ted.com before , you’ll know it’s a fascinating repository of talks by some of the world’s leading thinkers.
Today I discovered a talk by Jonathan Drori about the Millenium Seed Bank. When you have a moment take a listen and learn why three billion seeds from around the world have been gathered for safekeeping. Then click on the next talk and the next and the next and the next and before you know it, it will be time for supper.
You can find out more on the MSB, which is attached to Kew, here.
