Sierra Seed Cooperative
(N San Juan,CA)Sierra Seed Cooperative is a group of farmers and gardeners coming together to help rebuild a better, local seed system in our bio-region. We are building a rare and diverse seed collection, educating members about the practice of seed-saving, and growing a community of caring farmers and seed stewards. Seed is a precious common cultural heritage and is an essential component to the future sustainability of food production. There is an urgent need to protect seed sovereignty; the corporations who dominate the seed industry are not working for the common people. Our mission is to create an accessible and affordable source of regionally adapted seeds. This will promote sustainable and ecological seed production. Regionally adapted seeds are at the foundation of any truly sustainable local agriculture. Our goal is to preserve genetic diversity, empowering our local farmers and gardeners to take back the power of the seed stewardship. We have an expanding network of farms and gardens who We need to work with our plants and seeds to create a new revolution and evolution of local foods, which better fit our lands, our growing methods, and our tastes and imaginations. We strictly sell only public domain, open-pollinated (OP) seed. None of our seeds are proprietary hybrids (F1), patented (PVP) or genetically modified (GMO) and all of our seed is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. We sell many heirloom varieties, seeds that have cultural value as well as flavor. While our focus is on varieties that do well in our bioregion, we hope to make these varieties available to others who grow in similar climates in other places . Locally adapted varieties as the foundation of the durable and resilient local food system that we are helping to create. We are seeding the local revolution!!
