Farmer’s Pride – building a network for on-site conservation of Europe’s plant diversity
Our crop plants, their varieties and wild relatives are essential for our food, nutrition and economic security.

Farmer’s Pride is bringing together people with an interest in conserving and using plant genetic resources on farms, in gardens and in the wild.
