Seed Saving

August 14, 2017

SEED SAVING HAS A GREAT IMPACT

OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST CENTURY, THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE DECREASE IN AGROBIODIVERISTY - AROUND 3/4 OF TODAY'S FOOD IS PRODUCED FROM JUST TWELVE PLANT AND FIVE ANIMAL SPECIES.

 

ACCORDING TO THE UN'S FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANIZATION (FAO) WE HAVE EXPERIENCED A LOSS OF 75 PERCENT OF THE GENETIC DIVERSITY IN PLANTS ACROSS THE GLOBE SINCE THE 1900S.

 

WHY IS HEIRLOOM IMPORTANT?
An HEIRLOOM seed has been passed along for generations within a family or community. In this way, AGROBIODIVERSITY is preserved.

 

 

SEED LIBRARY

WYOMING FOOD FOR THOUGHT PROJECT NOW OFFERS A SEED LIBRARY AT OUR OFFICE.
 

 THE CONCEPT IS EXACTLY THAT FROM RENTING A BOOK OUT AT THE LIBRARY, IN THAT, YOU RENT IT OUT AND RETURN THE BOOK WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED. HERE’S A LABEL YOU CAN USE!

 

FIND OUT MORE AT OUR UPCOMING SEMI ANNUAL SEED SWAP WORKSHOP 9/18/17
