When Alicia Serratos was only 8 years old she became an activist on a mission to get GMO’s out of Girl Scouts cookies. She’s 13 now, still hard at work with her current project, 3 Sisters Seed Box. Her goal this year is to get seed libraries into 100 schools across the USA, using her ingenious “Seed Library in a box.” These seed libraries will make seeds accessible to many people who wouldn’t otherwise have them and teach people the practice of seed-saving and the importance of seed diversity. She’s on a mission to help kids and adults across the nation take control of their food back from Big Ag and to create empowered, healthier and more sustainable communities. Her work is fully in alignment with mine and I have chosen her as one of the recipients of my World Solutions Speaking Tour.
(Update: We made a donation of $1,287 to 3 Sisters Seed Box in February 2020) If you are inspired and touched by her life like I am, please follow her on Instagram at @Alicia.Serratos and donate to 3 Sisters Seed Box. You can also watch her story in the documentary The Need to Grow.
