More About Us

We envision the Greater Southwest as a place where farms and gardens, kitchens and tables, stores and restaurants are brimming with the full diversity of aridlands-adapted heirloom crops; people are keeping the unique seeds and agricultural heritage alive; and the crops, in turn, are nourishing humankind.

-As stewards of the seeds in our collection, we honor their origins, treat them with respect and value the traditional knowledge associated with them.
-We believe all farmers and gardeners have the right to save and share seed.
-Access to nutritional and flavorful food is fundamental to the mental and physical health of all people.
-Crop bio-diversity strengthens our ability to respond to climate change and supports food security.
-Our future depends on the degree to which we understand, value, protect and share crop agricultural and cultural diversity.
