DIVERSITATIS Foundation – Promoting seed diversity for organic agriculture.


Stop the loss of crop diversity

In many places of the world one can still find plenty of peasant crop varieties. But their existence is put at risk by industrial agriculture. While the loss continues, civil society structures are often weak and cannot provide the necessary seed saving actions.

Seed saving actions mean establish drying rooms and archive rooms, cultivating show gardens, organising exchange platforms, offering workshops on seed growing, and much more. Effective action in many places is not a question of committed and competent people – there are numerous – but of a few thousand Franc or Euro to get started.

DIVERSITATIS supports all kinds of seed saving projects. Our long-term goal is one strong and stable organization in every country of the world that promotes bio-cultural diversity in agriculture and horticulture practically and socio-politically.
