“I organized a two-day southeastern organic seed summit in early November 2016 and we all started outlining what needed to be done. By the end of that meeting, I had a clear path and we started taking action.” Tony Kleese
The first step was to recruit some help in the form of founding Board members and begin the filing of State and Federal paperwork for founding a non-profit. By February 2017, The People’s Seed was incorporated in North Carolina and by early August we had our 501C-3 status. We’ve launched a Founding Donors campaign to raise the initial capital to get us fully operational and will be organizing our first collaborations with cooperative grocers in NC in the spring of 2018.
