Seed Bankers in Paraguay



Worldwide, some 8,000 Americans are now volunteering in the tiny independent agency John F. Kennedy set up in 1961 to promote “world peace and human progress.” While some criticize the Peace Corps as just another institutionalized means for exporting American culture, many Peace Corps projects, like the Paraguayan seed bank, are uniquely participatory.
