Community seed banks as a springboard for food plant diversity:
Experiences and inspiration from European pioneers
How to stimulate increased use of food plant diversity in Norway? What can we learn from European pioneers. Welcome to a seminar about community seed banks as springboard for food plant diversity!
The key contributions at the meeting are from:
Bela Bartha: From a small initiative to a driving force in the national work for food plant diversity in Switzerland.
Kostas Koutis: Aegilops: Dynamic and participatory conservation and development of the plant heritage among farmers in Greece.
Catrina Fenton: The Heritage Seed Library: To keep a rich plant heritage alive, in spite of limiting legislation in England.
There will be discussions on what we can learn from these experiences in Norway (in English) and how the political framework can become more conducive to such activities (in Norwegian).
