• Promoting a seed conservation culture

    Seed Conservation

    Seed Savers Network's mandate is to promote crop genetic diversity for sustainable rural livelihood, food security, food sovereignty, resilience and climatic adaptation. We strive to achieve a food culture that guarantees future generations a right to supply of abundant food diversity as provided by nature. To achieve this, we recognize the need and priority of conserving natural resources for sustainable agriculture by encouraging ecological farming systems.

  • Educating Communities

    SSN-Kenya in Action

    Our organization provides an agrarian solution to conserve indigenous seeds by local communities through capacity building. We empower local communities with skills, knowledge and attitudes on seed subject.

  • Multidimensional Conservation Approach

    Agrodiversity

    We work to strengthen communities’ seed system a century models of self-seed reliance. Farmers are decades-custodians of seeds through in-situ conservation and on-farm saving of their improved landraces. They own these seeds and are entitled intellectual property rights under cultural heritage provided and protected in our Kenyan Constitution as well as by International Treaties. We believe social justice and environmental accountability is paramount for sustainability in food security and food sovereignty.
