Monthly Seed Story

2 years ago, Seed Social was founded as a response to the disconnection felt among community due to the pandemic.

We’ve since re-imagined how we can use this platform to uplift the work of people/ organizations in the seed space and build solidarity around issues affecting food growers and seedkeepers.

Every third Thursday of the month at 6pm MST we will meet on Zoom.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • we are each responsible for keeping a safe and welcoming virtual space
  • stay muted until given the opportunity to share
  • offer grace during tech issues
