Seed Networks

The spectacular diversity of productive plants, selected over countless generations by countless farmers, is our common heritage. Plants produce seeds (and other planting material such as cuttings and rootstock) in abundance, and by freely sharing and exchanging this surplus, seed networks propagate diversity and build resilience into communities. The below links will help you find a seed network near you – or start your own!
