Sherry Manning – Global Seed Savers

sherryA message from Sherry Manning, founder of Global Seed Savers:

"Organizations like the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance are the educational backbone of building a grassroots, citizen-led movement that is changing our food system one seed and student at a time."

RMSA is proud to partner with Sherry and her newly revamped nonprofit Global Seed Savers (formerly Friends of ENCA Farm). Sherry has been working for the past 7 years to help spread seed saving and organic agriculture knowledge among small farmers in the Phillippines. She sharpened her seed saving skills through several programs with RMSA (Seed School and Teacher Training) both as a student and teacher. Last year, Sherry invited RMSA co-founders Bill McDorman and Belle Starr to co-teach a Seed School in the Phillippines for the local farmers and it was a resounding success!

Sherry is one of RMSA's monthly contributors who recognizes the value in committing to the sustainability of the organization. For as little as the price of a cup of coffee, you can assure the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance continues to spread seed knowledge in the Mountain West.
