The Irish Seed Savers Association aims to conserve Ireland’s specialised plant genetic resources focusing on the preservation of heritage food crop varieties that are suitable to Ireland’s unique growing conditions. Irish Seed Savers are responsible for maintaining Ireland’s public seed bank, with over 600 non-commercially viable varieties of seed. Their work also incorporates locating rare varieties of vegetables, soft fruit, flowers, grains, potatoes and apple trees in order to research and gather more information on these species.
