Crowdfunding since 2010

Seed as commons and available for all enables diversity and self-determination. We are financing a free rye variety – and that's just the beginning.

OpenSourceSeeds accompanies breeders in the development of new, sustainable crop varieties – important work of independent plant breeders that often takes many years and whose financing is not secured in the long term. With this project and together with you, we can make the breeding of a new rye variety possible, and for the first time as a community. Let's invest together in the future of organic farming!
