How does it work?

The Nordic countries are facing a near future with climate changes and a need for plants with new properties. The seeds that we keep in NordGen’s gene bank contain possibilities to develop new plants that adapt better to the climate of the future. When you buy a gift box with seeds, you support NordGen’s work with conservation and sustainable use of plants and seeds. When you plant these seeds, you contribute to the conservation of our common Nordic heritage. Share your experiences with other Nordic leisure plant-growers with #nordgen.
