Why save seed
Seeds are a part of our heritage, and a connection with the food that we eat. Seeds were an original form of exchange and barter between peoples over the past centuries. This exchange allowed for communication between local populations and for a spread of biodiversity now threatened by multinational companies. Many people have lost any connection to their food since the advent of supermarkets and a loss of land to grow food, it is vital that these connections be continued.

Species
You can save seeds from flowers, trees, vegetables, etc. All seeds are essential to our survival. Our main focus however will be the saving and sharing of vegetable seeds. 

Guardians 
Seed guardianship helps protect varieties and gives people an opportunity to do something valuable for future generations.
