Why Save Seeds?

Reasons for saving seeds

People have saved seeds for centuries all around the world. The vast majority of commercially available seed today is grown on a global industrial scale and while engineered to resist certain pests, is not well adapted to the diversity of the local environments people grow in and often not designed to be saved and regrown. In our living history, this has led to a depletion in genetic diversity in the produce we can grow and we need to turn the tide.

By growing, saving and sharing open pollinated seed, we can do things differently in a way that’s better for the planet, better for us, and fun. We aim to focus on open pollinated seed varieties so seeds can be saved into the future.
