We believe saving seeds is a fundamental human right and that access to seed-saving education should not be dependent on an individual's ability to pay money for it. We offer our seed-saving zine on a sliding scale to support the rampant spread of seed-saving education throughout our communities. Pay what you can, and we'll pass the abundance along to support others on their seed-saving journey!

 

Learn how to save your own seeds with this emailed PDF version of our Seed Saving Zine! It's easy and fun!
