Daniel Wanjama is the coordinator and a steering committee member of the Global Open Source Seed System Initiative (GOSSI). He is also a council member of the Intercontinental Network of Organic Farmers’ Organizations (INOFO).”I grew up in rural Kenya where everyone in the village was a small scale farmer. Childhood hunger triggered my interest to study agriculture later. I have close to 20 years’ experience providing advisory services to small scale farmers on seeds and agroecology. I founded the Seed Network in Kenya 10 years ago and my interaction with traditional seed keepers has made me a convert of seed systems managed by farmers. I follow the Agikuyu traditional spiritual practice. We believe a seed is life and life comes from God and that seeds should be commonly accessible to all and that no one should have exclusive rights over seeds. I consider the current practice of patenting seeds evil.” www.seedsaverskenya.org
