“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.”

“Déclaration of Nyéléni,” February 2, 2007, Sélingue, Mali

Seed Tellers is a network of seeds, stories, communities, and lands weaved together through the exchange of personal anecdotes about food and the open-pollinated seeds that contribute to our reconnection with the land we inhabit.

the system remains active as long as its members are committed to sharing stories, conserving and reproducing the seeds that are offered to them. Each member receives from a friend an envelope containing a personal food anecdote and the seeds associated with this story. In exchange, he will first conserve and reproduce the seeds offered, and second, he will share a personal story himself with three other colleagues. By doing so, the Seed Tellers network grows exponentially, consolidating a more-than-human community of storytellers that care about the food that feeds us, the land where it is grown, the people that work it, and the multiple species that coexist in symbiosis around it.
