The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security was launched in February 2013 to help build the national movement to conserve and advance seed biodiversity, keep seed in the public domain, and promote ecological seed production. ACORN is proud to be the host organization for this work in Atlantic Canada!
Under this banner ACORN coordinates seed field days, events, workshops, research projects, and support for seed libraries. For information on national programs and resources, please visit seedsecurity.ca or semencessecures.ca. Steph Hughes is the Regional Coordinator for this program in Atlantic Canada. To receive updates and news about seedy events, activities and projects in Atlantic Canada, please send Steph an email.
This program is made possible thanks to the vision and leadership of Gretchen Bauta, member of the Weston family. It is delivered by USC Canada, in partnership with Seeds of Diversity Canada and through the generous support of The W. Garfield Weston Foundation.
