In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film SEED: The Untold Story, we meet seed-obsessed botanical explorer Joseph Simcox, who has loved learning about plants and seeds since a very young age. With his brother Patrick, he shows us rare and precious seeds they’ve collected from all over. “My seeds are my way of sharing food with people all over the world,” he says. From Bolivia to Tanzania, Peru to West Virginia to Vietnam, “I’ve been to over a hundred countries, collecting thousands and thousands of seeds. He feels he has an obligation to the world, “whether that’s unbalanced or not, to bring this appreciation to as big a swath of humanity as possible.”
