We are still buzzing from the energy and inspiration of the first Mountain West Seed Summit. It was a dizzying effort, but with support from so many, including our Summit partner the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, the conference went off without a hitch!

Around 200 attendees and presenters came together to explore the concept of regional seed hubs linking local seeds and local food producers. We shared ideas, resources, and passion. A key result was the creation of bioregional groups that are now taking steps to create seed hubs in their home communities!

This momentum will continue in the weeks and months to come. RMSA will be playing an active role in the process to keep this work advancing. If you couldn’t make the Summit but want to get involved, now is a perfect time.
