Seed School Online is an innovative educational experience that brings our acclaimed Seed School training program to people everywhere. We developed this unique offering as a response to the growing demand for in-depth seed education. Now, students around the world have access to RMSA's empowering and immersive seed learning experience from the comfort of their home!

Seed School Online's primary instructor Bill McDorman has been inspiring people to save seeds for over 30 years. All the resources and support Bill has accumulated through a lifetime of learning and teaching has come together in Seed School Online—and now this knowledge is available to you!

During our 7-week program, you will network with other seed stewards and find your own inspiration. You will hear personal stories of individuals who have transformed their new seed knowledge into action by launching small seed companies, seed libraries, and exchanges.

Seed School Online combines technical guidance, engaging visual content, and hands-on activities in a powerful immersive learning platform. Here's what past participants have to say about this informative and enlightening course:

"This was my first time attending a lecture online, and I wasn't sure what to expect. Seed School Online was so interesting! It gave me lots of new ideas that I can't wait to put to use in my garden. Thanks so much!"
—Renee, Colorado Springs, CO

"Just wanted to say I attended the introductory webinar and wanted you and Bill to know it was very well done. Given I teach at universities and do distance education, I can appreciate what you did. Looking forward to the rest of the course."
—Beth Kersey, Anchorage, AK

More About Seed School Online

Dear Future Seed Steward,

A global renaissance is underway, and you can be a part of it! Now, more than ever we need to take control of our food and seeds. This is essential for our health and the resilience of our communities.

Imagine taking the best of this year’s garden into the next by simply selecting the seeds from plants that work for you. Taste, insect and disease resistance, drought tolerance—the sky’s the limit when choosing seeds from plants that performed outrageously well in your garden: maybe in places you never expected they would.

Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening seed and food security in our region.

Our mission is to assure a diverse and abundant supply of seeds for the Rocky Mountain West through networking, education and helping establish community-based models of seed stewardship.
