Success Stories

Seed Programs International

SPI facilitates access to good vegetable seed and gardening expertise — this is where we excel. When the seed hits the ground around the world, much of what happens next depends on the creativity and hard work of our partners.

When we enter into a partnership, our partner’s goals become our goals where they can align with our mission. Partners know best what is needed for their success. We rely on their expertise to facilitate a relationship between us and their communities, and to ensure that the decision-making for our programs is directed from within those communities.

Projects are accomplished by people working in a specific social and environmental context. Because we rely on our partners to lead projects in collaboration with their farming communities, we also strive to understand the contexts in which they work.

Here are just a few examples of the partners who have used SPI’s seed.
