Tangail, Bangladesh

Farmers prepare seedlings at the UBINIG Tangail Centre. The centre receives seeds from local farmers to be stored in the Community Seeds Wealth Centre. The facility has been running since 1998 and through it local associated farmers can deposit their seeds and pick up new ones, free of charge. UBINIG is a Bangladeshi NGO focused on education, training and empowering of local farmers in issues such as environmental responsibility, organic farming, food sovereignty and the promotion of social rights. The goal of the NGO is to promote local varieties and be less dependent upon companies selling seeds.
