Introducing CFS's Global Seed Network!

Saving, growing, and sharing seeds is critical to ensuring food security. That's why we created the Global Seed Network to connect and unite seed savers to protect seed sovereignty and biodiversity.

About Save Our Seeds

Seeds represent the rich heritage of biological diversity and are important repositories of ancestral and cultural knowledge.  Over millennia, farmers and societies developed seeds and shared them collectively to ensure food security and local economies.  Through seed saving and traditional plant breeding knowledge and technologies, communities developed diverse seeds to adapt to drought, heat stress, pest and plant diseases, and other environmental stresses and geographical limitations.
