The humble spud: The potato’s wonderful history and future feeding the world

spudPotatoes are often invisible one one’s plate. Not considered an exotic, it has been a food you can rely on to soothe your soul and stomach. Many have claimed its origin, due to its capacity to keep people alive in so many diverse environments. But its origin history begins 10,000 years ago in highland South America.  While introducing the science of the potato and its complexities of diversification, we will learn how it is farmed in its home and how people are helping it adapt to the changing climates of the world.
