This paper investigates seed politics through the case study of a native potato repatriation and related livelihood projects at the Parque de la Papa in the Peruvian Andes. It demonstrates that this spatial reconfiguration recontextualizes agricultural expertise and the fruits thereof in the farms and daily lives of Andean communities ; and it offers a decolonizing vision of genetic resource value. Through a variety of practices and discourses the Parque is articulating and actualizing a critical geography of agrobiodiversity and its conservation
