    We safeguard plant genetic materials through on-farm seed-saving, community seed-banks and field gene-banks for agro-biodiversity conservation. This practice ensures production of crops adapted to a certain environment.

    Most importantly, we promote food and seed sovereignty. SSN-Kenya anchors its work on traditional science of plant breeding for easy understanding and uptake by all in the community.

    Supporting Community Seed-banking

    Our work began in 2009 with few small-scale farmers in Gilgil Sub-County with the aim of promoting and sensitizing farmers on the significance of conserving indigenous and non-GMO seeds. Over the years, the numbers have grown with farmers saving local seeds in their community seedbanks.

    We use a multi-pronged and interdisciplinary approach that enables farmers to attain: Food security, food sovereignty and seed access. To achieve this our programs integrate various aspects in Ecology, seed legal framework, economic and Women Empowerment.
