"There is nothing more important in our times than saving seeds and swapping seeds. We are faced with a seed emergency caused by rapid disappearance of seed diversity; the replacement of renewable seeds with nonrenewable, patented seeds; and the perverse idea that seed saving and seed sharing is an 'intellectual property crime.' Seedswap will help spread the seeds of freedom." —Dr. Vandana Shiva, seed activist and founder of Navdanya International
