Revival of indigenous seeds at Borusellasie (Avaclim)

The mission of the initiative is to restore the diversity of the heritage of indigenous seeds of Borussilasie. The traditional varieties are preferred by the members of the community for their taste, suitability for making different dishes, nutritional value and traits that enable them to tolerate stress.

The revival of indigenous seeds varieties is an agroecological initiative that has been undertaken since 2018 by farmers in the Mesal 07 Kebele community in the Borussilasie area of the Tehuledere district, of the North Wollo zone in the Amhara regional state.

Most of the population of the kebele lives on privately owned family farms where they have the right to lifetime land use and also it is inheritable. The agroecosystem of the area experiences moisture stress frequently and serious water shortages causes people to travel long distances to reach water points.
