Global Seed Savers

Global Seed Savers is an International Development non-profit organization committed to building food and seed sovereignty. Currently, their work is focused in the Philippines and executed in close partnership with Global Seed Savers Philippines (Philippines Counterpart NGO). Through educating and encouraging farmers to return to the historical practice of saving seeds they are no longer dependent on purchasing seeds after each planting and forced to use harmful chemicals to grow their seeds. Through Global Seed Savers education and training programs, Filipino Organic Farmers gain the hands-on skills and knowledge needed to propagate, store, save, and sell their own regionally adapted organic seeds. This enables farmers to be self-sufficient and ensures that organic seeds are more readily available throughout the Philippines. Visit their website to learn more.
