Agricultural biodiversity is everything that makes food and agriculture possible, from the microorganisms, plants and animals we consume to the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural issues that inform what and how we eat. It’s big and important — and it’s at risk. Slow Food celebrates biodiversity, supports those who promote it and helps people learn how our food choices impact the world around us.
Co-founded by Chef Dan Barber, vegetable breeder Michael Mazourek, and seedsman Matthew Goldfarb, Row 7’s mission is to change the food system from the ground up. Row 7 works alongside breeders, farmers and chefs to develop new varieties of vegetables and grains that make an impact in the soil and at the table.
