Our Global Reach: Where the action takes us

Supporting Seed Saving Globally

Seedsavers principals and funders Jude and Michel Fanton know the value of peasant and tribal contribution to biodiversity and local culture: each year they embark on Seed Solidarity Tours to set up community seed exchanges and networks, give keynotes, visit existing seed projects and generally lend a hand, partnering seed organisations to gain more national and local public attention. They often return to these countries to follow up on the progress of the various organisations where they always find new ideas and inspiration to share with other local networks.

Here are those countries, nations and tribal areas.
