About Irish Seed Savers Association
Irish Seed Savers Association CLG has been in operation since 1991. Originating from an ambitious effort to create a central store of food crop seeds and fruit trees where none had previously existed, our work to date has been to research and protect rare, heritage and naturalised open pollinated food crop seeds and fruit trees on our 20 acre farm in County Clare. Curating the country’s public seed bank of 600 varieties of heritage seed and the country’s 180 varieties of heritage apple trees, our work has expanded over the years to include an education and outreach remit to not only connect more people to our work, but also to ensure the protection of these collections for the encouraging more people to grow open pollinated seeds for their food supply. Our main aim for our collections are preservation (find), conservation (keep alive through growing), and utilisation (sharing) for the continuation of these heritage food sources for now and future generations.
