Seed and Farming Research

Research is at the heart of our programs on the farm at Seed Peace

Our team is actively engaged in developing, testing and teaching agricultural systems that help sequester carbon, combat climate change and improve community health by creating health giving, poison free superfood! A unique focus of our farm is on the development of a seed supply of adapted plants for future generations in the Roaring Fork Valley!

Our seed programs cover a wide range of projects to improve crop performance and resilience in an increasingly unpredictable climate. We work to improve the flavor and nutrition of crops like winter squash and carrots, to increase the storage ability of onions, and also on more ambitious projects like the development of tomatoes that can handle light frosts!

We aim to pass the important skills of seed saving and regenerative farming on to future generations to ensure the resilience of farming in the  Roaring Fork Valley!
