Food Ark- Seed Saving

Posted by Bonnie Borucki on March 8, 2012 at 3:20 AM

"To feed our growing population, we’ll need to double food production. Yet crop yields aren’t increasing fast enough, and climate change and new diseases threaten the limited varieties we’ve come to depend on for food. Luckily we still have the seeds and breeds to ensure our future food supply—but we must take steps to save them."- Charles Siebert, National Geographic, July 2011 http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/07/food-ark/siebert-text/1

The Bay Area has many opportunities to participate in seed-saving and exchanges. Listed below are two organizations. Please add your own ideas, events or seed saving requests.
