On this week's SOUNDPRINT,
Thousands of varieties of plants are rapidly disappearing
in the United States, especially non-hybrid types of garden
vegetables. These are called heirloom varieties, and they're
difficult, if not impossible, to buy from commercial sources.
The seeds are instead often passed from gardener to gardener,
often in families, and they represent an irreplaceable genetic
heritage that is being lost. Producer Neenah Ellis examines
the reasons these seeds are disappearing and the efforts underway
to preserve them.
We strongly encourage our listeners to send e-mail to
email@example.com. We are carrying the program on
an experimental basis and the producers of SOUNDPRINT would
like to know if anybody is listening. If it helps, there
is a brain teaser contest at the end of each of the programs
in July. Win fame and self-actualization by demonstrating
your creative instincts!

Network connectivity for the Internet Multicasting Service
