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:
