Supporting Climate Resiliency for Farmers

Please help me as I raise money to build climate resilient food systems!

Global Seed Savers works on a grassroots level to encourage smallholder farmers in the Philippines to return to the practice of growing and saving their own seeds. By providing farmers with the tools and support needed to be independent and self-sustaining, our work restores farmers' sovereignty over their food system and their lives. We do this through our comprehensive programs - technical and educational training, seed saving and establishing seed libraries, and encouraging organic and sustainable farming practices.
The Philippines is the fourth most climate-vulnerable nation on the planet. As a result, we believe the work and models being developed in the Philippines are of the utmost importance not just in the Philippines, but across the globe. Reducing smallholder farmers’ dependence on large bio-chemical agricultural companies and helping farmers to prevent further catastrophic damage from our changing climate is paramount.
Since 2015, we have conducted over 5,000 hours of technical training programs, training over 2,000 farmers in seed saving and agroecology practices, across eight regions of the Philippines. We have directly founded two seed libraries and influenced the creation of two others that are being locally led.
We know our model works and we need you help to continue its expansion!
