Alan Kapuler: Man of Science, Ideas, and Humanity




For more videos and information, visit: http://cookingupastory.com Dr. Alan Kapuler is a man who thinks on big time scales, and across wide geographic spheres of reality.

A molecular biologist by training, as a young adult, Kapuler experienced an almost spiritual connection from working with plants. Years later, he became a public domain organic plant breeder, and an impassioned advocate for the protection of the natural world. Kapuler believes, the interconnectedness of all living things—biodiversity itself, is the true seed of life. Widely regarded as the founding father of the organic seed movement, Kapuler's reverence of living things is embodied in his daily work—planting, breeding, and cataloging of seeds he has done for almost 40 years.
