Bellingen Seed Savers care deeply about the future of food security and so, focus their efforts around saving seed.  Saving seed is crucial to ensure that non GMO modified and non hybridised seed are always publicly and openly available to everyone.  “We want to make sure that when you plant a tomato seed that you were given by your neighbour, that that seed will grow a fertile plant, that will give you lovely tomatoes to eat and preserve and when you save the seed from that tomato you can grow a plant from that seed again the next season, or give it to your friends and neighbours,” says Erik de Jong, active local Seed Saver member.
