SEED PROGRAMS INTERNATIONAL
Tons of Food
Conflict, climate change, and poverty are the main culprits.
Good quality vegetable seed, locally-appropriate farmer training, agricultural supplies, and ongoing support can provide a solution.
Seed Programs International is a 501c3 nonprofit based in the US that operates globally.
We assess vegetable seed availability and strengthen local seed markets. We provide appropriate seed when local sources are not adequate.
We identify appropriate training that leverages existing knowledge and resources to bolster food production and strengthen resilience.
We provide capacity building, project consultation, and technical expertise to organizations around the world.
We connect regional partners to share successes, challenges, resources, and knowledge to improve program success and growth.
When you empower a woman, you empower an entire community. The UN estimates that for every $1 a woman makes, 90 cents goes back into her family, creating upward mobility that breaks the cycle of poverty. By working with women’s groups, we help women build food security whilst producing income for their families.
38 million people in the US are food insecure. We believe community gardens can change that. Our community gardens promote food literacy and increase access to healthy, nutritious food for families in need across the country.
Vegetable-growing programs are unlikely to be the first response in a crisis, yet are an enduring, stabilizing element. Economists and disaster victims alike know that post-crisis food markets can feature wild shortages and surpluses, price spikes and crashes, and food-quality concerns. By fostering vegetable production, relief efforts can help provide long term resilience.
School gardens grow vegetables and also grow future leaders to counter hunger and poverty in their communities. In many places, a garden-supported school lunch is the only healthy meal of the day and motivates parents to keep their kids in school.
