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.

Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons 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 develop 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.
