About the Living Library

Working with growers and educators, DFC is documenting cultivated crops around the globe by collecting time-lapse footage, interviews with farmers, and scientific and practical data about each recorded plant as it grows from seed to harvest. This content is compiled, edited, and packaged for use in an online “Living Library,” which preserves the growth practices of produce species from all over the world.

The Living Library is a hub for knowledge sharing and social networking amongst farmers and scientists as well as the greater public. It is also the portal from which we build unique and inspiring programs that will educate growers and consumers and advocate agricultural practices.
