Devoted to preserving vital genetics and ending the war on drugs.

This clever image was brought to us by Seed Matters on Facebook - Seed Matters is a Clif Bar Family Foundation initiative advocating for the protection and improvement of organic seed to ensure healthy, nutritious, and productive crops to feed people now and in the future.
The initiative's primary goals are to:
1) Conserve crop genetic diversity.
2) Promote farmers' roles and rights as seed stewards.
3) Reinvigorate public seed research and education.
We can achieve these goals through:
a) educating our food community on the role, benefit, challenges, and potential in seed
b) supporting the work of the initiative's nonprofit partners to protect and improve seed;
b) creating a coalition of organizations and companies that advocate for organic seed systems.
