We Cultivate Diversity

Communities

Communities
Seeds belong to the communities that cultivate them to grow their own food. RSR works to facilitate and support the development of connections between all those people that, in all their diversity, are engaged in building new communities around seeds.

Research in Action

Research in Action

Sustainable, diverse agriculture is only possible if agricultural research takes place in the fields (decentralisation) and involves a greater number of stakeholders (participation). We call this research in action and believe it’s the future. Far from enough resources are currently devoted to breeding for genetic diversity and low impact farming. According to FAO, that could be as low as one third of total investment in agricultural research.
Community Seed Banks

Community Seed Banks

Agrobiodiverse food systems require that seed is accessible to farmers, growers and gardeners. In that context, community seed banks become an essential resource, whether formally or informally organised. RSR advocates for the creation and establishment of community seed banks. We also have our own! We built and ad-hoc structure in our Scandicci headquarters where we identify, select, store and make available resilient, biodiverse seed varieties.

Sowing the Seed of Change

If we want more resilient food systems, we need to enable the desired change at all levels: policy, legislation, the economy and society all need to support a better system. We are active in advocacy at the local, regional, national and European level.

Only by collaborating with others involved in the production, governance and consumption of food will we manage to enable the agroecological transition to a more agrobiodiverse system. That is why most of our work is carried out within multi-actor projects.
