Our Programs and Advocacies

From a small non-profit supporting the efforts of a single farm, Global Seed Savers (GSS) has grown into an international community of farmers, educators, and other individuals who are committed to building hunger-free and healthy communities by expanding access to sustainable, farmer-produced food and seeds.

Since 2015, when we launched our first Seed School curriculum, we have trained more than 5,000 farmers on the hands-on skills and knowledge they need to propagate, store, save, and sell seeds. This in turn, has helped make regionally-adapted organic seeds more readily available in the country.

These small seeds we have planted have germinated significant growth over the years—growth such as collaborative Seed Libraries, better educational curriculum, more training programs, community expansion, and much more!

SEED SCHOOL

The Seed School is designed to offer a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the history, science, business, and craft of saving seeds.

SEED libraries

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.

SEED production

The Arapal 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.
