Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, they all bring different knowledge and experience to the community research teams featured in Saving the Seed.  In a country still dominated by big, cash-crop plantations, these small-scale farmers are creating their own agricultural technologies and are thriving even on the most marginal lands.

Starting with their locally-adapted seed varieties, through a process of hands-on experimentation and learning, these farmers-scientists have developed bean and maize varieties that succeed in harsh conditions and increasingly unpredictable weather patterns.

As they share these innovations with neighboring farming communities, one thing is becoming clear:  these farmer-scientists are redefining what food security looks like.

Saving the Seed is partnering with USC Canada, one of the nation’s oldest and most trusted development agencies,  to  raise money for the farmer-scientists of Honduras.
