Seed Saving Data Sheets

Included below are the downloadable seed saving sheets which accompany the book How to Grow a Seed Collective: a community template for seed saving, by Robin Wheeler and Susan Davidson.

The book is currently available by download.


These sample resources have been posted here to assist communities in creating maps and databases of existing seed growers, keep track of seed, and have education near at hand for new folks or eager growers.

The templates have been broken into categories that cover seed saving basics to ensure quality collections; seed storage and distribution systems – both on paper and computer records. Communities may choose only the sections that they feel are needed and adapt ideas for their own use.
