Community Seed and Food Fairs in Malawi

Introduced by civil society organisations, seed and food fairs are a regular feature on the calendars of farmers working with the Biodiversity Conservation Initiative (BCI) in northern Malawi. Frequently held on the premises of a community seed bank (CSB), these events provide a space for smallholder farmers to display the diversity of crops, fruits, and vegetables they grow, alongside wild harvested edible and medicinal species.

Seed and Knowledge Initiative

The Seed and Knowledge Initiative (SKI) is a dynamic partnership of diverse southern African organisations committed to securing food sovereignty in the region.

We work with smallholder farmers to become more seed, food and nutritionally secure through farmer-led seed systems, improved crop diversity, and the revival of local knowledge systems. While we have relationships with a number of organisations and individuals all over the world, our primary stakeholders are the farmers we work with in Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
