About 90% percent of the world’s farms are owned and operated by families. Most of these farms are small and are often found in rural areas of developing countries such as the Philippines. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, 70% of all food consumed worldwide come from these small family farms.

But did you know that many of these small holder farmers are food insecure?

There are a number of factors that have led to this issue: shrinking farm sizes and farmers leaving the agriculture sector, increasing cost of food production, and the unpredictability of the changing climate.

Today, there is an increasing need for a sustainable agricultural system that will help us tackle the triple challenge of producing more food, creating more jobs, and preserving our natural resources. For us at Global Seed Savers, small family farmers, equipped with the seeds and the agricultural knowledge they have inherited from their parents and grandparents, lie at the heart of the solution.


Organize, educate, and mobilize smallholder and family farmers in creating seed sovereignty and fostering sustainable communities and regenerative ecosystems.
