Million Seed Savers
Imagine this: Every community saving and sharing its own seeds. Local farmers markets brimming with a sumptuous variety of unique and delicious crops. Healthy, diverse regional food systems free of toxic pesticides and chemicals.
Today, people everywhere are relearning the timeless traditions of seed saving and creating resilient food systems rooted in local seeds. A seed saving revolution is underway and gaining momentum around the world.
We are watching this inspiring movement grow each day. What is needed now is to step up our collective efforts and rejoin the ancient ritual of seed saving on a broad scale. We’re dreaming big and setting a visionary goal of creating one million new seed savers across the United States.
Collective Eye Films and Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance invite you to join us in this important and inspiring campaign by committing to grow and save at least one seed variety. You don’t have to be an experienced gardener to participate. Learning to save seeds is simpler than you might think! We’ll provide you with helpful resources to get started. All you need is a patch of soil (or garden pot), along with some passion and imagination.
What would it be like if we had one million NEW seed savers throughout the country?
Here are more ways to get involved:
Perhaps the best way to awaken your local community to the power and virtue of seed saving is to arrange a screening of SEED: The Untold Story. If you want to see this important film or bring it to your community, click here.
Join the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance
If you live in the Rocky Mountain area, join the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance. We believe the most effective way to save and share seeds is to share them first with those who live nearest to you. Our goal will be reached when the seeds for the Rocky Mountain West come from the Rocky Mountain West.
