Seed Savers Network

The Seed Savers Network was set up in 1986 by Michel and Jude Fanton. Their goal was to provide:

  • Educational programmes for the preservation of open-pollinated (non-hybrid) seeds and the genetic diversity of plant varieties;
  • Non-profit seed exchange programmes;
  • Agricultural and horticultural programmes with particular emphasis on the propagation of open-pollinated plant varieties;
  • Preservation gardens for open-pollinated plant varieties;
  • Seed banks for non-hybrid plant varieties;
  • Scientific research relating to the above matters, either alone or in conjunction with a public university or other institution.

There are two local chapters in the Adelaide region:

Seed Savers Network has a strong relationship with Permaculture principles and values.
