A Guide to Seed Saving, Seed Stewardship & Seed Sovereignty
by The Seed Ambassadors Project (That’s us!). 4th Edition, January 2010. 38 pages.
Our small publication/zine on seed saving. Contains basic background information and fundamental concepts of seed saving as well as straight forward and concise info on saving seed for the main garden crop types. You can download this for FREE to use or to print and distribute yourself.
Seed Saving Zine 4th Edition (3.8 MB PDF) This version is formatted as a handout and is your best choice for printing and reading if you do not have one of those fancy zine staplers.
Seed Saving Zine 4th Edition Duplex (3.5 MB PDF) This version is formatted for printing in a duplex printer & folding into a zine. That is why the pages seem to be in a weird order. If your printer does not have duplex ability you can print it one page at a time, flipping each page over to print the back side.
We are currently out-of-stock on our own printed copies of the zine BUT hope to someday come out with a NEW edition. Stay tuned!
