Through Training & Networking Opportunities

Through conferences, field days, workshops, webinars, and mentorships, The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security co-creates engaging learning spaces with farmers and seed savers in the communities where we work.

Peer exchange is one of the best ways to learn, be it about technical aspects of seed production, strategies for running a seed business, or how to conduct on-farm research. Training opportunities are organized in each region to facilitate farmer-to-farmer exchange, foster and develop the skills and knowledge of local seed stewards, and to provide opportunities for everyone in the community to visit and hear about this important work in the field.

For information about training and networking opportunities in your region, please contact your local Regional Program Coordinator.

To access online learning about seed crop production, the seed sector in Canada, running a seed business, and more, consult the Resources section of our website.
