Who are Seeds of Diversity?
Seed of Diversity are a group of seed savers from coast to coast who protect Canada’s seed biodiversity by growing it themselves and sharing it with others. Every year, they multiply the most vulnerable seed varieties that they can, exchange seeds with each other, and keep those varieties alive and in cultivation for future gardeners to enjoy.
As a membership organization, their main funding is from their own contributions in subscriptions and charitable donations. Over 1000 members across Canada make Seeds of Diversity a vibrant and visible part of the gardening and food security scene.
Seeds of Diversity volunteer at over 150 Seedy Saturday and Seedy Sunday events across Canada, write articles for their popular magazine and monthly email bulletin, package seeds for community seed libraries, and help beginner seed savers learn the easy techniques for growing good seeds
