Seed Growers Network

The goal of the Seed Growers Network is to foster an alternative seed initiative by strengthening the community of seed savers and growers, develop marketing opportunities, and collaborate with regional seed companies focusing on production, processing, storage, and distribution of locally-adapted, public domain seed varieties for commercial use. The group is working with Seed Revolution Now! and the Organic Seed Alliance who is organizing field education days, seed production intensives, the purchase of shared equipment, and the development of bioregional seed hubs. The Seed Growers Network helped organize a pre-conference at the 2015 EcoFarm Conference "Cultivating Organic Seed Stewardship" to learn how seeds and crops succeed in different environments and develop the knowledge around organic seed cultivation through variety trials, data collection tracking, increased availability and diversity, a strong seed network, and greater seed security.
