S.A.S.I. Farms

Sacred Ancestors Seed Initiative

The history of the African diaspora holds many stories of struggle and survival, from the arduous Middle Passage to the harsh conditions of slavery. Despite little food being available, enslaved women would braid rice into their hair, symbolizing their strength and willpower to survive. We want to honor these stories and traditions by focusing on education and training programs that empower people to embrace their heritage and continue the traditions of seed preservation. We view seeds as our ancestors that hold the stories and knowledge of our past. We created S.A.S.I.  to continue this tradition and to be able to pass it down to the next generation.

Seeds Are Life

We honor and protect seeds. It is our right. Stories like Petronella tell the importance of protecting seed sovereignty.

This film is in partnership with Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) and produced by A Growing Culture.
