Seed saving is the practice of collecting and preserving seeds from plants for use in future growing seasons. Seed saving has been practised for thousands of years by farmers, gardeners, and indigenous communities around the world. Enthusiasts say this practice is essential for preserving genetic diversity and maintaining the sustainability of our food systems. For small farmers, there are many benefits to seed saving. When we save seeds from different plant varieties, we preserve their unique traits and characteristics. This helps maintain the biodiversity of our food systems and protects against the loss of genetic information that can occur with the use of hybrid and genetically modified seeds. Another benefit of seed saving is that it is a sustainable practice.
