Seed School: Creating Regional Seed Solutions

Sunday, June 1, 2014

220 Grove Ave, Prescott, AZ 86301

Seed School was founded by Bill McDorman and Belle Starr and now counts among its graduates over 425 students from around the world. Bill and Belle are the recent former directors of Native Seeds/SEARCH and will now expand and enhance their Seed School trainings. Please bear with them as they create a new website presence (www.seedsave.org).

Seed School is a groundbreaking, six-day educational course that trains people from all walks of life to build local seed systems rooted in the ancient tradition of seed saving. Practiced by farmers and gardeners for thousands of years, seed saving strengthens food security at the community level, empowering people to reclaim control over their food supply. Students walk away from this innovative learning experience with the knowledge and inspiration to start their own independent seed initiatives, such as community seed libraries and exchanges, seed growers cooperatives, heirloom seed businesses, and participatory plant breeding projects.
