Why Collaboration is Essential

Collaboration is a key principle in our model for change. We are honored to work side-by-side with local and international partners to grow our impact and to support the continued success of our partner farmers. We partner with NGOs, Local Governments, Corporations, Community Based Organizations, Farmers Associations, and Community Members to advance our mission and to ensure that we are not operating in silos, but are building lasting solutions from the grassroots.
As an organization, we pride ourselves in making sure that we don’t only provide support but that we develop relationships with the communities we work with and center local leadership and direction. These behavioral and relationship changes are the key to ensuring that lasting change is brought about and that our activities are sustainable well beyond their initial stages.

Our US offices are based in Denver, Colorado, which is the land of the Cheyenne and Arapaho and 48 other Indigenous Tribes and Nations who call Colorado home. They are the original Stewards of this stolen land and it is because of their successes and continued hardships that we are able to engage in our collective work of restoring the indigenous practice of saving seeds.
