Worlds in Transition - Världar i Omställning

Andrew McMillion about his journey into community seed banks

Andrew McMillion grew up as an expat in Europe, Asia and the States and ended up in Norway where he studied philosophy in his youth. There he learn about the deep ecology philosophy taught by the Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess. Being later employed in the tech industry in different parts of the world, Andrew started to think deeply about the environment and the consequences that climate change will have on all aspects of life across the globe. One think led to another and eventually he ended up buying a small farm near Oslo Norway, quitting his daytime job, and setting up a greenhouse. In this conversation we discuss how seed saving and community seed banks have played an important role in rooting Andrew´s life purpose in the very ecology which he is part of.
