Do you have leftover seeds from your seed swap or seed library?

We can help circulate them to our representatives who will put them to good use at other community seed swaps. Every week during the winter, we mail books and table-top materials to Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays all across the country, so we can easily include your leftover seeds in our packages. Our volunteers will make sure the seeds get to their local seed swap tables and seed libraries, so you'll know that they won't go to waste.

Mail your leftover seeds to:

Save our Seed

Thursday February 21, 2019          1 pm est

Ag Canada has launched consultations on proposals to increase seed royalties either by an End Point Royalty or with Trailing Contracts. The proposed royalty scheme would have farmers who use their own seed pay millions of dollars more to seed companies every year, and make illegal the ancient practice of freely saving and reusing seed by creating new regulations under the Plant Breeders Rights Act.

In this webinar, Terry Boehm, Chair of the National Farmers Union Seed Committee and former NFU President, will explain how the proposed royalty system would harm farmers, citizens, and society in general — and what we can do to stop this from happening. The webinar will also include a Question and Answer session.

This webinar will be held on the Zoom online meeting platform. If this is your first Zoom meeting, please go to https://zoom.us/ and “sign up” at least 10 minutes before the meeting starts. If you are using your smart phone you may need to download the app before you join the meeting.
