Seed Saving


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!
