April 2012

In honour of National Volunteer Week we would like to express our deep appreciation to the huge team that supports the work of seed saving and food biodiversity protection across Canada. Volunteers are involved with Seedy Saturdays and other events, seed growing and saving, article writing and translation, and a wide range of other project and event administration activities. Being national in scope, we need passionate people to engage in local communities. Thank you so much to our dedicated volunteers for your time, expertise and passion. Please consider volunteering with us - for one day a year at a Seedy Saturday or for multiple days of help. Contact for opportunities.

This month we are also launching our Seed Library to the public! Of the over 1100 rare seed varieties that we have backed up on behalf of our member collectors, we are offering public samples of about 60 varieties that are non-commercial, and recently multiplied. Our goal is to build up a viable supply of the 90% of all seed varieties that are are not sold by seed companies, so that one day they can be available to farmers and gardeners again.
