Authors: Louise Windfeldt


This commentary describes the work of the NGO Danish Seed Savers, working with heritage plants, highly prioritized by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The Danish Seed Savers act as activists, when they work to change the implementation of EU seed-legislation.

The commentary reflects on the role of the Danish Seed Savers. They are science communicators and activists but asks: are they alternative?
