Threatened Communities

An important part of our mission involves preserving and sharing seeds from communities under threat, and attempting, wherever possible, to return seeds to those communities. Whether by war, famine, poverty, global capitalism, or climate change (and usually a combination of those), the way of life in many traditional farming communities is undergoing tremendous change in the 21st century. Indeed, given the specter of climate change in particular, most every community could be considered under threat, but the seeds offered in this collection (most unavailable from other seed companies) come from some of the most devastated communities on the planet. Growing them and sharing them is not enough to save these communities from further harm, but it is one thing we can do to help.
