At Global Seed Savers, our mission is to preserve agricultural heritage and promote food sovereignty. Recently, we took a significant step towards this goal with our “Seeding the Future” program at the Bogo Seed Production Site in Cebu. Led by the dedicated Sweetie Maurillo, this activity focused on conducting a thorough seed inventory to ensure seed quality, monitor quantities, and optimize resource allocation.

Our objectives were to maintain the viability and germination rates of our seeds, prevent overstocking or shortages, and plan efficient seed production schedules. We also aimed to monitor our equipment inventory to minimize downtime and maximize productivity. Despite the challenges posed by the intense heat and the time-consuming nature of physical verification, our team’s commitment never wavered. Through meticulous tracking, we produced detailed reports identifying surpluses, shortages, and equipment status, allowing us to allocate resources more effectively and plan future production with precision.

This seed inventory is more than just a logistical exercise; it is a crucial part of our mission to safeguard agricultural diversity and empower communities. Accurate inventory management ensures that our seeds are preserved and ready for planting, contributing to resilient food systems. By supporting our efforts, you help us maintain the health and viability of our seed stocks, ensuring a sustainable and food-secure future for all. Together, we are seeding the future, one inventory at a time.
