gregLAST DAY to Join RMSA as a Supporting Member for $5/month and get access to Seed School Online for free!

Greetings seedy friends!

I'm Greg Peterson of the Urban Farm U educational network. My life changed forever in 2011 when I attended Seed School and Bill McDorman challenged me with a question: What are you doing that will make a difference in the world 100 years from now?

This provocative idea has propelled me forward in my path of seed discovery. Many new dimensions have been added to my life and business, including becoming a devout seed saver myself. (This morning I collected 4 ounces of parsley seed outside my back door—from seeds in their fifth year of growing in my yard!)

I feel blessed to be working with the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance, putting in place local seed systems that are changing the world for the better. Join me today in supporting RMSA and making a difference that will be felt a century from now!

We need your help to keep the seed saving movement alive and thriving in the Rocky Mountain West. And along with your committed support, we want to support you in your seed saving efforts.

If you sign up as a RMSA Perennial Member for $5/month before July 14th, we will send you access to Seed School Online for FREE! Take advantage of this special offer ($97 value) and dive deeper into your seed saving journey with our acclaimed webinar course.

A longtime ally of the food and seed movements, Greg Peterson has been dedicated to building a more sustainable food system for over 20 years. Through his Urban Farm U educational organization, he teaches permaculture and regenerative living practices to students around the world.

We are proud to partner with Greg and Urban Farm U on our Seed School Online course and in our semi-annual Great American Seed Up events in Phoenix, Arizona—which are soon to become a "franchise" that can be replicated anywhere! (Look out for the next Seed Up on September 22nd and 23rd.)

AM TaosFrom our Seed Hearts to yours:

Seven years ago, while living in community in the Redwoods of Marin County California, I was given stewardship over our seed cache. I had been spending more and more time in the garden.  Feeling the pull of the soil that fed me peas and carrots for breakfast as a child in dew-dripped mornings of Northern Wisconsin. The wonder, power, and infinite nature of seeds had captivated me. In a time of contemplation, deep upon a mountain, I was inspired to start a seed company. As if arranged by the seed gods themselves within days I discovered, met, and fell in love with Bill McDorman  and Belle Starr. Their openness, passion, and love for all of life embraced me and my wife Astrid. I was fortunate to make it to the second Seed School and have my life changed forever. A few months later we hosted Bill, Belle, and Seed School in our home and community. Seed school is an experience for which I will forever be grateful. Bill and Belle inspire so much in people. They affirm life, beauty, community and communion.  If you ever have the chance to be with them, I highly recommend it.

sherryA message from Sherry Manning, founder of Global Seed Savers:

"Organizations like the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance are the educational backbone of building a grassroots, citizen-led movement that is changing our food system one seed and student at a time."
– Sherry Manning (pictured kneeling in front)

RMSA is proud to partner with Sherry and her newly revamped nonprofit Global Seed Savers (formerly Friends of ENCA Farm). Sherry has been working for the past 7 years to help spread seed saving and organic agriculture knowledge among small farmers in the Phillippines. She sharpened her seed saving skills through several programs with RMSA (Seed School and Teacher Training) both as a student and teacher. Last year, Sherry invited RMSA co-founders Bill McDorman and Belle Starr to co-teach a Seed School in the Phillippines for the local farmers and it was a resounding success!

Sherry is one of RMSA's monthly contributors who recognizes the value in committing to the sustainability of the organization. For as little as the price of a cup of coffee, you can assure the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance continues to spread seed knowledge in the Mountain West.
