About Us

The Kingston Area Seed System Initiative (KASSI) is a grassroots organization founded by local farmers, backyard and market gardeners, and concerned community members. We promote responsible stewardship of our seed heritage.Our Mission is to grow our community seed heritage.Our Goals are to ensure sustainable local food production by:

  • Fostering a healthy regional seed system
  • Growing out and distributing heirloom and locally-adapted seed
  • Creating a vibrant network of regional growers

We believe these objectives will help increase seed (and thereby food) security for the Kingston region.
