Help Preserve Seeds With Life-Changing Potential

Target: Alvaro Lario, President of International Fund of Agriculture Development

Goal: Invest in effort to save heirloom Palestinian seeds and to promote their value.

Seeds passed down from Palestinian farmers through the generations are some of the most resilient on the planet. Many strains can withstand droughts and heat waves that have become commonplace during the climate crisis. As such, these seeds are migrating worldwide with the help of dedicated conservationists.

The Palestine Heirloom Seed Library is a labor of love that seeks to preserve the seed varieties in danger of being lost. This initiative also develops partnerships with local farmers and promotes the rich agricultural heritage of Palestine through cooking demonstrations and other projects. Factors such as displacement, crop burnings, and the force of big business agriculture have endangered Palestinian seed supplies that are cherished by the local culture. On a wider scale, the loss of these seeds would deprive the world of a valuable weapon against increasingly harsh climates and environments.

Sign the petition below to urge investment in and expansion of these irreplaceable natural wonders.


Dear Mr. Lario,

From fava beans to gourds, Palestinian heirloom seeds are helping small farms around the world withstand some of the worst effects of the climate crisis. Yet these invaluable commodities face constant threat from regional conflict and from agribusiness pressures. The Palestine Heirloom Seed Library is trying to change this narrative and preserve Palestine’s beneficial agricultural heritage, but they need assistance.

Please invest in expanding this important initiative for the sake of a world that needs all the help it can get.
