Community Seed Bank & Nursery for Native Seeds (No Hybrids / No GMO)
An initiative to collect, propagate and exchange indigenous and rare native varieties of vegetable & crop varieties of India. Our vision is to restore and popularize our vast diversified heirloom varieties of vegetables and crops among Indian farmers and home gardners. We started raising this nursery from some the indigenous native seeds collected from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. We collected close to 180 rare and indigenous vegetable seed varieties in a very short span of time. We would like to thank local farmers and other like minded friends who helped us in our seed collection journey which has just began.
In January 2017, we started our first of the kind organic plant nursery to promote and propagate native vegetable saplings to farmers. We raise saplings of native varieties of Brinjal, Tomato, Red Chilli and Okra and sell it to farmers to increase the production of native vegetables in the market. Through this initiative every farmer would regain their lost seed sovereignty.
