On 15 May 2019, members of 10 community seedbanks from the southern region of Nepal came together at the Agyauli Community Seedbank in Nawalparasi to participate in a seed fair. A seed fair is an activity to create awareness about and appreciate local crop diversity, exchange seed and related knowledge, and celebrate farmers’ efforts to conserve agrobiodiversity. It takes considerable time and effort to organize a seed fair. The Agyauli seed fair was divided in four parts graphically presented in this brief.
