Enough rice, maize and wheat to feed an army -- well, that's the hope (someday)! Nearly 3 weeks ago the Svalbard Global Seed Vault opened on a remote island in the Arctic Circle, with 100 million seeds (just the first shipment!) that originated in over 100 countries. The Vault is a project of the Global Crop Diversity Fund, with donations from large corporations, wealthy philanthropists, and countries across the globe. You may be surprised to hear America is NOT one of the biggest donors for this worthwhile eco-program. The opening of the seed vault is part of an unprecedented effort to protect the planet's rapidly diminishing biodiversity. The diversity of our crops is essential for food production, yet it is being lost -- and fast. Joining us today to tell us all about the Seed Vault is Carey Fowler of the Global Crop Diversity Fund.

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
