2001 - 2016

2016 is the International Year of Pulses


The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization passed a resolution in 2013 to officially designate 2016 the year of the pulses. Here are gladly just a few names of a few heirloom pulses (legumes, beans and peas) still avilable today. Some are very rare. Local Food believes it very important for us to maintain all remaining open pollinated seed material. Seeds are our global food genetic heritage. Seeds are an open YES to the possibility that we may continue.
