CLEVELAND, OH — Cleveland Seed Bank invites anyone to become a member and join more than 2,000 others working to build an alliance of seed savers in Northeast Ohio.

There are several advantages to becoming a member of the Cleveland Seed Bank, including:

  • Early admission to the Winter Seed Swap
  • Access to unique member-only events and have networking opportunities
  • Priority access to locally adapted seeds

There are two kinds of membership, namely:

  1. Individual Membership: $50.00
  2. Family Membership: $100.00

The preservation of local, open-pollinated seed varieties is essential for the planet’s ecological resilience and the maintenance of our food security. The unprecedented loss of our planet’s biological diversity and alarming dominance of multinational corporate agriculture have put seed resilience and thus food availability at significant risk. Saving open-pollinated seeds is a decentralized, local solution to this global problem.

As an independent and accessible source of open-pollinated, non-GMO seeds, the Cleveland Seed Bank aims to develop a regional alliance of seed savers dedicated to the creation of a locally adapted seed supply.

Since 2013, the Cleveland Seed Bank has been helping residents access high-quality seed through seed libraries, seed exchanges, and educational workshops. Your membership will help further their mission and their dedication to protecting the seeds.

The Cleveland Seed Bank is the domestic work of the Hummingbird Project, an international nonprofit based in Cleveland, Ohio. The organization aims to safeguard and restore the biological diversity vital for sustainable agriculture, both in the US and around the world.
