Raise our forks for diversity!

We are at crossroads for the future of our food: the EU is currently negotiating new rules for the seed market. The current rules, introduced in the 1960s, promote seeds that were developed for industrial agriculture. Seeds that can be sold together with harmful pesticides and synthetic fertilisers, and grown in monocultures. The agro-industry is pushing for the rules to go even further, outlawing diversity to make both the seed and our food system even more uniform. What we need is exactly the opposite. We need seed laws that secure our right to healthy, diverse and tasty food, by truly enhancing diversity in farmers’ fields and in gardens, supporting local varieties, and respecting farmer’s rights.

Sign our petition to call on EU decision makers to not succumb to the industry's pressure, but to protect and promote crop diversity as well as farmers’ right to harvest, use, exchange and sell their own seed!
