IDEP Foundation | Helping People to Help Themselves - Seed Saving

  • Caring for Seeds, Caring for Life

    During these five years of cooperating with IDEP, farmer groups in Pedawa Village have been able to try variations of vegetable and fruit crops and cultivate them. The variety of seeds they plant provides its advantages because they can implement crop rotation to minimize the arrival of pests and diseases. "It's good that we can exchange seeds because here [IDEP] is a seed bank, so we do not plant one type of plant," said Kadek Suantika, a farmer from Pedawa Village.

  • Mitigation and Adaptation Efforts to Climate Change

    Disasters repeatedly appeared throughout 2021. Flash floods and landslides occurred in Indonesia, especially East Nusa Tenggara, which has claimed hundreds of victims and lost more than Rp. 24,409,100,000. And also, in another country, an unexpected catastrophe occurred. Extreme rains and storms have caused flash floodsin Germany and Belgium. Later heatwaves have resulted in wildfires in Greece, United States, Canada, and Australia.

  • Role of Women in Seed Saving Impact on Community Resilience

    Seeds Saving is the first step to manifest community food resilience. Local seeds’ existence will help farmers manage their agriculture by themselves. Different from hybrid seeds which can’t produce good seeds for the next planting. Moreover, hybrid seeds are a product that creates by industrial agriculture and the big boom agrochemicals. It makes farmers become addicted to seeds in the market. Mongabaylaunched, these conditions will have a fatal impact on national food resilience.
