Join us online on the 23rd and 24th of October, 2021 for discussions, workshops and talks celebrating the diversity, opportunities and deep cultural connections of our seeds.



The Gathering will be held virtually this year to keep all participants safe and minimise any disruption to programming due to changing pandemic restrictions. However, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to ensure that all attendees still feel connected, engaged and excited by what’s on offer! We are currently putting together the event programme, but you can expect:

  • Talks from key researchers in seed diversity, genetics and production
  • Discussions across our seed networks on key challenges and opportunities
  • International speakers on their work in seed sovereignty
  • Explorations into seed processing, legislation challenges, building and strengthening our seed networks
  • Celebration of seed cultures, histories and futures


We will be publishing more details soon as well as inviting input from our wider seed network, but for now, please save the date. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to our 2021 Seed Gathering.
