Approximately sixty percent of South Africa's seed patrimonies of local or traditional varieties of food crops have been lost as people have migrated from rural areas to the urban areas over the last several generations. Munya is building a network of integrated home seed banks that not only preserves vital crop varieties in South Africa, but also revitalizes food sources and culture. His approach allows households in urban areas to self identify and conserve heirloom and noncommercial white maize, watermelon, peanut, Jugo beans, and sorghum seeds.
