The Vegetable Seed Producers Network is a program organized by Seeds of Diversity and The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security. The programs serves two functions:
- To produce vegetable and specialty crop seeds according to industry best practices, which will then be pooled for bulk-scale supply to vegetable farmers, gardeners, and other growers, and
- To ensure that our seed collection remains viable and of the highest quality possible, by continually supplying fresh seeds to replenish seed stocks as required.
This project was funded in part through Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Agricultural Adaptation Council assists in the delivery of Growing Forward 2 in Ontario.
