Seed savers meeting with government officials 28.11.2018

legislation Dec 03, 2018

This meeting was the last of several meetings that took place in 2017 and 2018, before project commenced. Several Lithuanian seed savers raised the problem of seed-exchange being “illegal” in Lithuania and the issue was addressed for several actors in government institutions as well as other stakeholders. A more crop diversity, seed-saving and seed-exchange friendly provisions were sought for. Feedback from stakeholders was mixed with some being very supporting, while others did not see it as an important issue.
