Bob Wildfong has been saving seeds and teaching about food biodiversity for over 20 years. From apples to zucchini, he mixes science and storytelling to reveal the secret lives of seeds, plants, and pollinators. He lives in Waterloo, Ontario, but enjoys visiting gardens and farms everywhere.

As Executive Director of Seeds of Diversity Canada, Bob helps connect seed savers from coast-to-coast to rescue endangered Canadian seeds and food plants, and to help develop markets for biodiverse food. Through Seeds of Diversity's Pollination Canada program, and as a steering member of the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign, he is helping to build a movement to preserve the native bees and pollinating insects that sustain our food and natural ecosystems.

As the President of the Culinary Historians of Canada, Bob delights in telling stories that show how our food system has changed continuously throughout time, and that we can learn a lot about future food sustainability by remembering past lessons.

Bob Wildfong is the Horticultural Specialist at the Waterloo Region Museum. For the past twenty years Bob has cared for the gardens in Doon Heritage Village. These gardens feature over 200 species of heritage plants.

This program is in partnership with Seeds of Diversity Canada.
