Saving Our Seed is a USDA Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education (SARE) funded project, organized by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and nine partnering organizations, working to increase the availability of regionally adapted, open pollinated, certified organic seed and develop a southern seed network.
The One Seed At A Time Project, launched by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association in conjunction with the Seed Saver’s Exchange, is an organic seed bank dedicated to saving the biodiversity of heirloom southeastern vegetables, herbs, grains, and flowers. As seed saving becomes less a part of our culture, hundreds of heirloom varieties are on the verge of being lost. This bank will play a crucial role in preserving our heritage for us and for our future.
