Martinez has also been working with the International Potato Centre in Peru, as well as local farmers and breeders in the Andes for the last three years. This year, they harvested 224 new varieties of root vegetables, which he says have better flavour. A small number is being kept at the seed banks, but the rest of the harvest has been shared with 300 families living in Andes who are in serious need of food.
