Association Kokopelli Organic Seeds
“For the Liberation of Seed and Soil”
Association Kokopelli, a non-profit making organisation in France, was set up in 1999 to take up the torch of Terre de Semences in France, which was forced to close down following the enforcement of a ministerial decree (Ministry of Agriculture) imposing draconian conditions for the legal registration of ancient vegetable varieties in a “A List for Amateur Varieties”.
Association Kokopelli has, in this short time since 1999, blossomed all over Europe presenting an imposing collection of ancient vegetable varieties. Many members of the Association are very deeply involved in the protection of alimentary biodiversity and the safeguarding of traditional varieties.
