seed exchange what is

Here are the guidelines of this important and fundamental initiative through some key words:

Seed, exchange and gift, storytelling and transmission of stories and knowledge, active participation and support

Seed

Everything revolves and wants to revolve around the seed and Nature.

It is, and wants to be, the place of exchange.

That is why for years we have chosen not to be the place where markets or spaces for promoting personal activities are organized, although we understand their value and importance.

Not to shift focus and attention, to direct all energies around the story of seed and life, that tiny thing capable of generating something immense.

Exchange, gift

For a well-measured and thought-out choice, there should be no sale or personal coin revenue around the seed.

Each seed can be either traded or donated: you can exchange seeds for other seeds or cuttings, or barter for some self-produced food, or in exchange for time and help…or simply with a smile…

No one on this occasion can receive money for their seeds…and if anyone really wants to make a voluntary financial offering, then they are invited to put them in the offering pot for self-funding activities around the seed exchange, which you will always find at the entrance.

Money circulates spontaneously to support collective rather than individual actions.

Storytelling and transmission of stories and knowledge

Hidden in the gesture of exchanging the seed is another gesture that is equally important for it to continue to live: it is the partica of storytelling. The passing of seeds between hands goes inescapably through the sharing of their characteristics, soil and growing techniques, but above all through the transmission of their history, where they came from and around them what happened, in homes, in dishes, in markets, in the landscape…

Active participation and support

The seed swap is a self-managed, self-organized and voluntary event.

The first volunteer action, made up of care and attention, methodologies and observations, is in the fields and gardens. Without farmers and enthusiasts of all backgrounds and entities who choose to grow local, organic, non-hybrid varieties and preserve their seed, seed exchange could not exist.

From the gardens the seed’s journey continues with the intention of reaching as many people as possible and to secure Life, just as Nature does, and as Wind or as insects, we have the task of dispersing seeds.

Without everyone’s active participation, this event could not exist nor continue over time.

Without the desire to get to know and support each other, the network itself would weaken, because like roots, relationships also need nurturing, and just as Nature does, which sustains and embraces, so too does the exchangeiosemi integrate the will to support those realities that work for social and community.

Thank you for sharing and supporting!
