For 12 months now we have been sharing inspiring stories of resilience & possibilities with the world via our podcast & YouTube channels. It's been so fulfilling finding, capturing, & bringing these stories to a wider audience. Our podcast is gaining steam & is growing quickly.

The Story Connective is running a fund drive, and we need your support. We want to give back to the projects whose stories we've shared. So, if you donate to either at or, you will get to vote on which one of the projects we've told a story about over the past six months that you want to support. Whichever project gets the most votes by our donors will receive a portion of the donation money from this fundraiser.

Fund drive and voting ends December 31st, so donate today!

"The Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) is dedicated to maintaining fair and open access to plant genetic resources worldwide in order to ensure the availability of germplasm to farmers, gardeners, breeders, and communities of this and future generations. The Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) engages in education and outreach that promotes sharing rather than restricting access to plant germplasm, recognizes and supports the work of plant breeders of all kinds, and supports a diversified and decentralized seed industry. The core strategy for achieving these goals is the dissemination and propagation of the OSSI Pledge and of OSSI-Pledged varieties, both of which preserve the rights of farmers, gardeners, and breeders to freely use, save, replant, and improve seed of OSSI-Pledged material."
