  /  Peliti


PELITI is a Greek Non-Profit Organization for the protection and dissemination of Traditional Seeds. These are freely reproducible Common Goods belonging to the Public Domain. Its main actions include seed collection and distribution, a seed bank, annual Peliti & Olympic Seed Festivals, etc. The group cultivates and collects herbs for educational purposes.

PELITI is based in the viliage of Messochori of Paranesti in northern  Greece.  It was founded in 1995 by Panagiotis Sainatoudis. There are now lively local chapters in various geographical areas of Greece one in Bulgaria (Peliti of Bulgaria), one in Cyprus (Peliti of Cyprus) and one in U.S.E.  (Peliti of Ιdaho) which disseminate knowledge about saving seeds as well as the seeds themselves. All the people that work at Peliti are volunteers. We at  PELITI take the view that we must assume responsibility for what is happening at the personal and global levels.  It is a vital imperative that our vision of the world shape developments. Accordingly, each one of us must contribute to the solution in whatever way we can. It is our responsibility to focus on positive action.
