People have been saving and sharing seeds for over 10,000 years. Seed libraries have sprung up around the country to support this practice, which not only brings communities together but also helps protect the diversity of our seeds and strengthens our food system.
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Minnesota and Nebraska seed libraries have received letters from their state departments of agriculture saying they are out of compliance with state seed laws that were written to regulate seed companies.
We need your help to convince state departments of agriculture across the country to remove the legal barriers to seed sharing through seed libraries.
Now, thanks to the Sustainable Economies Law Center, we have an active petition to help make this possible. There are over 10,000 signatures already -- so help us by adding your name! Click below to go to the SELC web site and be part of the solution!
