Local Seed Networks
Action People Needed to Start Seed Networks
It is all about producing our own seeds and exchanging them with others – Free the Seed! – not planting corporate seeds.
Community groups, indigenous organisations, Transition Town groups, schools and individual collectors have joined hands for local seed action.
Seed Savers is now able to accept registration of Local Seed Networks from groups all over the world.
Our Global Reach
Seed Savers has had a direct effect on seed saving in forty-four countries. Former interns, trainees and associates have started seed saving groups and movements in about half of them. Seed Savers’ principals and founders, Jude and Michel Fanton, have visited the rest, providing training and giving presentations on seed issues and the practicalities of seed saving. Each year they go on a Seed Solidarity Tour when they advise on setting up community seed exchanges and networks, give keynotes, document seed projects, take video footage and make media appearances
