Learn about the importance of seeds and how saving and conserving them for the future is key to sustaining healthy life on the planet.

Seeds are essential to all life on the planet. They provide us with food, clothing and other materials we need and use every day. Without seeds, the planet wouldn't have as many species of plants as we do now. Without plants, there wouldn't be oxygen to breathe and there would be less food for all life on Earth. But today seeds are under threat, mostly from human activity. The climate crisis and food insecurity mean protecting our seeds is more important than ever. In Save Our Seeds, young readers will hear from experts in the field and learn how to take action to preserve seeds for the future.

The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.

“The latest volume in the well-regarded Orca Footprints series presents a broad array of information about seeds…Exploring seeds more broadly than most children’s books on the topic, this volume encourages readers to collect, plant, and share seeds—a small, yet powerful resource.”

– Booklist

“Author and master gardener Sheryl Normandeau… emphasizes the importance of saving and conserving seeds for the future in order to sustain healthy life on Earth. Highly Recommended.”
