Your participation and contribution will help to educate citizens and associations to reproduce seeds locally .

 

1/3 of the collected funds will help to create 200 ambassadors originated from the main movements and associations committed to save biodiversity. Those ambassadors will commit themselves to pass on their knowledge to 50 persons in the year.* Those ambassadors will receive a free 4 days formation in the Conservatory of Sainte Marthe, in Sologne, in the center of France. Here they will learn all secrets of reproducing and conserving seeds.

 

1/3 of the funds will be dedicated to create tutorial on-line free videos. This content will be produced in partnership with SIKANA Nature and the trainers of the Sainte-Marthe's farm. All the methods of reproduction and conservation of seeds will be illustrated so that they will democratize this knowledge.

 

1/3 of the collected funds will help to save 150 endangered vegetable and fruit varieties. These seeds will be distributed to the ambassadors « seeds of life ». * 200 ambassadors who will train 50 qualified people = 10 000 people
