Community Seed Toolkit
Community Seed Toolkits provide resources to community gardeners, educators, and organizers interested in creating community-based seed events, exchanges, seed banks, and plant breeding clubs. We not only encourage and support community seed projects, we also promote the sharing and exchange of seed, knowledge, and skills.
Community seed projects revive a tradition we’ve shared in growing food for centuries: from a handful of seed, we grow, gather, and share more seeds – enough not only for ourselves but an abundance to pass on to neighbors, family, and the next generation of gardeners and farmers. Saving and exchanging seeds is the way we discover new varieties, preserve heirlooms, and breed locally adapted varieties. Whether you are a beginner seed saver or long-time organizer of seed projects, our educational resources can guide you through the decisions it takes to develop projects that fit the needs of your community.
A group of seed savers started out with a seed swap, and now are on their way to creating a local seed library. With the help of our Community Seed Toolkits you cultivate your own local seed solutions.Find out more
