Call for Proposals: Seed Training Workshops

Since 2013, The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security has supported farmers to learn about on-farm seed crop production through webinars, field days, and workshops. This year, we're inviting farmer educators and seed mentors to help expand our network of engaged growers by designing and delivering seed saving workshops in their communities.

This call for proposals is for seed saving farmers who have knowledge to share, and who are keen to develop their presentation/facilitation skills.

Please complete the Proposal Submission Form (which provides all the relevant details), and contact Steph Hughes ( with questions. Proposals will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis until the budget is spent. Interested farmers are encouraged to submit early.
