Our Mission
We are on the verge of losing in one generation, much of the agricultural diversity humankind created in the last 10,000 years. The International Seed Saving Institute, a non-profit, non-governmental educational organization was founded as a response. Central to our strategy is the seed saving ritual, a ritual as old as civilization, a ritual in many ways responsible for civilization.
Basic Seed Saving Instructions!
Anyone, with little more work and attention than it takes to grow a home garden, can begin to re-elevate the gardening experience to a sustainable level. Rediscover the importance, magic and rewards of seed saving. Find specific instructions for 27 vegetables.
ISSI Projects
ISSI has sponsored projects to help people become truly self-reliant in more than a dozen countries. We provide regionally adapted, open-pollinated seeds and the essential designs, tools and knowledge. We are now using Permaculture design principles to help people grow their own food and seeds.
Volunteer Translators Needed
Help us make available the most important seed saving information needed by our expanding core of "angels" teaching seed saving around the world. Spanish, Russian and French are first on our list.
