Seed Stewardship

Seed Stewardship is an ongoing series of seed saving and storytelling events, film screenings and publication sharings focused on seed sovereignty and global food security. Sharing the wealth of local knowledge and history related to food and land rights on Skye, the programme brings together artists and organisers to build solidarities with people dealing with the violent effects of food insecurity and environmental catastrophes around the globe. Here you will find archive events, stories and resources related to the programme.

Seed Stewardship is also a network of temporary and permanent seed libraries around Skye and Lochalsh. In 2020, fourteen seed library boxes popped up, inviting people to share seeds and stories from their harvest produce via several different specially created boxes scattered across Skye, Raasay and Lochalsh, depositing seeds in specially created envelopes for sharing with other local growers. These boxes and libraries will appear sporadically throughout the year. If you’re interested in hosting a seed library box, or want to share a story, get in touch.
