The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium
www.therarevegetableseedconsortium.com

Michigan/ Ithaca

 The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium's chief aim is to establish collections of lesser known and sometimes exceedingly rare food plants.  Presently there are about 14,000 species and varieties in The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium's holdings, and that number is ever climbing.  

 Survival of biodiversity depends on active growing and seed saving.  As Joseph Simcox often remarks, 'In a way, the best seed bank is the very dirt in your back yard'!  This is to point out that while formal seed banks do have an important role in safeguarding biodiversity, the most reliable way of ensuring seed viability is to plant it year after year. To that effect, The Rare Vegetable Seed Consortium works to actively promote season-to-season cultivation, seed saving and sharing of its holdings of rare, non-GMO, heirloom genetic material.
