When we visit our grocery stores, the rows and rows of produce on display may seem like an abundance in varieties. But did you know that over the last 2 decades, 75% of genetic diversity of agricultural crops has been lost?
Take a moment to imagine if your favorite seeds disappeared from catalogs tomorrow. Wouldn’t you like to have a back up plan? From local seed varieties going extinct every year to GMOs and seed patenting, we’re experiencing more insecurity in our world’s seeds than ever before.
That’s why small farmers and hobby gardeners around the world are joining together to preserve seed diversity not only to grow robust, high-yield crops in their own gardens, but also for the sake of the greater world.
The Global Seed Summit gathers thousands of food growers from around the world to discuss the importance of seeds and how YOU can become a part of the seed movement. Over 4 days, you’ll learn how seed libraries strengthen food sovereignty, and WHY you’ll want to join or maybe even create one in your own community. You’ll also learn about seed adaptation for extreme climates, and be amazed by inspiring seed initiatives from around the world.
The event is free to join, and there will be opportunities for you to stock up on bulk seeds to start your own seed journey.
This is a free, online event with presentations occurring daily from November 17-20, 2020.
