Replenishing Seeds, Restoring Resiliency
This is a real world example of the importance of communities having access to seed libraries and locally adapted seeds. Each of the seed distributed have already been grown in the Philippines, so we know they are adapted to the local climate.
Access to a seed library has enabled the BASS members to quickly re-plant quality seeds they know will work on their farms rather than having to purchase expensive, chemically treated seeds.
While the impacts of climate change in the Philippines (tied for 4th as the most climate vulnerable nation) are only getting stronger, seed libraries are a huge step towards building resiliency and ensuring communities can adapt in the face of frequent typhoons.
