Our Programs, Advocacies, and Impacts to the world
The Seed School is designed to offer a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the history, science, business, and craft of saving seeds.
In May of 2017, Global Seed Savers, the Benguet Association of Seed Savers (BASS), and the Municipal Agriculture Office of Tublay in Benguet Province launched the first of its kind collaborative Seed Library. BASS aims to save, replant, and share their own seeds just as their ancestors did, while also benefiting from new, ecologically sound technologies.
In 2020, GSS entered into a partnership with Arapal Nature Farm located outside fo Bogo City, Cebu to launch a seed trial production area, seed nursery, and seed library at Arapal Farm. The seed production area is 1,200 sq meters and will serve as a model for other regions of what dedicating land to seed production can do.

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.
