The CSRP is housed on the new online Seed Exchange, an interactive home for Seed Savers Exchange’s national seed swap, where over 600 members participate by sharing open pollinated seeds that are rarely sourced elsewhere. Additional features of the CSRP website include a seed events listing page, membership map that showcases CSRP applicants, and free downloadable seed saving resources.
Saving and exchanging vegetable seeds is the best way to discover new food varieties, preserve heirlooms, and breed locally adapted crops built to withstand the vagaries of climate change. In addition, seed saving opens up a world of possibility for reinvigorating cultural relationships to food and food histories. Being that seed is our foundation, we want to inspire new models of sustainability in food growing efforts in regions across the country.
