Webinar report : CSA for CSB (Community Seed Banks), 15th of April, 2021
Article from the RIPESS Europe newsletter - May 2021
“Community”. Both Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and Community Seed Banks (CSB) start with this word. This is no mere chance: they are both community-based solutions, relying on civic commitment.
Community Seed Banks (CSBs) are emerging as part of informal seed systems. Their goal is to counteract the loss of locally adapted crops through dynamic, collective management. Community Supported Agriculture groups (CSAs) are community-based alliances of producers and consumers, providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.
