Our Team and Mission

Welcome to Backyard Seed Savers! We know both the Art and Science of Seed Conservation and Resilient Food Systems.

Our team is comprised of academics and practitioners in the areas ecology, horticulture, organic agriculture, cultural anthropology, development sociology, international development, genetics and plant breeding, agroecology, and food justice movements. This interdisciplinary initiative brings together local and international collaborators with diverse strengths and skill sets in applied research and across three tenets of Agroecology–agroecology as a science, agroecology as a movement, and agroecology as practice. Not only do we bring our expertise in both arts and sciences, we bring to this initiative our deep passions for resilient seeds, food systems, and communities.
