3 Sisters Seed Box

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 back control of their food back from Big Ag and to create empowered, healthier and more sustainable communities.

In today’s context of biological and ecological destruction, seed savers are the true givers of seed. This gift or “dana” of Navadhanyas (nine seeds) is the ultimate gift – it is a gift of life, of heritage and continuity. Conserving seed is conserving biodiversity, conserving knowledge of the seed and its utilization, conserving culture, conserving sustainability. Navdanya is a network of seed keepers and organic producers spread across 22 states in India. Navdanya has helped set up 122 community seed banks across the country, trained over 900,000 farmers in seed sovereignty, food sovereignty and sustainable agriculture over the past two decades, and helped setup the largest direct marketing, fair trade organic network in the country.
