JOIN THE Seed Freedom Campaign:
“Seed affects all life on earth and every human being”
Come and learn about the links between the global Seeds Freedom Campaign and Californian Prop. 37.

Open-pollinated organic seeds create the foundation for a mutually beneficial relationship with pollinators like butterflies and bees, soil organisms, birds and insects.
Chemically bred seed and monocultures destroy biodiversity both above and below the soil.
Farmers have bred open source seeds for health, nutrition, taste and diversity. Seeds of freedom for farmers are also seeds of freedom for everyone that eats food that farmers grow. Healthy seeds produce healthy food, whereas seeds bred to respond to chemicals or genetically modified seed contributes to disease and ill-health. Seed Freedom is Food freedom.
Each of us needs to become a seed defender to protect the freedom of seed and biodiversity and our own freedoms to have healthy, safe and diverse food. We need to act because industrial farming, genetic engineering and seed patents are undermining our freedoms.
You can be a seed defender by joining actions through the Seed Freedom Movement.”
