About Seed School
People everywhere are waking up to the vital importance of seeds for our future.
Seed School is a groundbreaking educational course that trains people from all walks of life to build local seed systems rooted in the ancient tradition of seed saving. Practiced by farmers and gardeners for thousands of years, seed saving strengthens food security at the community level, empowering people to reclaim control over their food supply. Students walk away from this innovative learning experience with the knowledge and inspiration to start their own independent seed initiatives, such as community seed libraries and exchanges, seed growers cooperatives, heirloom seed businesses, and participatory plant breeding projects.
Seed School is designed to offer a comprehensive yet accessible overview of the history, science, business, and craft of seeds. Appropriate for adults and teens at all skill levels, this course is for gardeners, farmers, chefs, entrepreneurs, NGOs, activists, policymakers and anyone interested in turning the tide on the industrialization of our food system.
With hundreds of graduates around the world, the acclaimed Seed School program is available in a range of courses to suit all specific interests, schedules, and lifestyles- including an online option! If you want a little taste and a reminder of why you should attend Seed School, view videos below.
