Nurturing agricultural diversity through backyard seed saving

In Paul Navrot's vision, home gardens are ideal spaces for fostering diversity in cultivated plant strains through seed saving and sharing. Here, heirloom strains are not subject to the pressures of commercialized systems, and can beneficially serve the regional ecosystem and garden community. Paul Navrot wants to teach every gardener how to save, share, and plant food-crop garden seeds.

Paul Navrot serves on the advisory board for Home Grown New Mexico and helps organize community events around urban agriculture and seed sharing.
