From the archives of Cooking Up a Story, this lasting favorite speaks with Alan Kapuler as he traces the contours of his adult journey in the garden, from his early beginnings living on a commune in the 1970’s, Kapuler, molecular biologist, founder of Peace Seeds (his organic seed company, now Peace Seedlings passed down to the next Kapuler generation), former research director for Seeds of Change, and the developer of public domain open-pollinated plants through his efforts as an organic seed breeder—has evolved an unique perspective on life and agriculture that he generously shares in this video episode.

Filmed in October of 2010, this is the final video in the Alan Kapuler series that is now published. Kapuler shares how he first became attracted to growing food, and why he finds gardening to be such a rich and rewarding intellectual and spiritual pursuit.
