The Seeders program works to exchange forestry and agricultural seeds between volunteers in Panama.

Seeders Program

Project contributors: 2008

Vision of the Seeders Project

To provide agricultural/forestry seeds to all nine providences where PCVs live, through regional meeting exchanges and individual PCV visits to office seed bank.

Objectives of the Seeders Project

• To provide green manure seeds to support soil conservation, (such as Carnivalia and Macunna).

• To provide agricultural seeds to support home garden and demonstration plots, (such as tomato, cucumber, radish, pepper, squash, bean, etc).

• To provide forestry seeds, including native and exotic tree species to support in timber plantation, aqueduct reforestation, and agro forestry systems, (such as Caoba, Roble, Arcasia, Guacapali).

How it Works

Before every regional meeting the seeders group prepares a tackle box by adding forestry and agricultural seeds, labels, and a trimester newsletter "Seeders". A box is taken to each regional meeting where volunteers are free to exchange seeds. The box is then returned to the office and the seeds are stored in the refrigerator.

When Exchanging Seeds

When leaving seeds in the box or the refrigerator remember to add the following information about the seeds:

What type of seed, Who collected the seed, Where was the seed collected, Date of collection

Contact Seeders

To request seeds or information on reforestation or family gardening send an email to the Seeders: SeedersPCP@gmail.com.
