Please join us in congratulating our new SeedChange Board Chair, Tiffany Traverse!


Tiffany Traverse
Tiffany Traverse

Tiffany is a Secwépemc, Swiss/Italian farmer, land and seed steward, language learner, and food sovereignty advocate. Her passion for feeding people and firm belief in the right to healthy, culturally-appropriate foods for all, drives her work. She is passionate about the uncomfortable work in dismantling structural racism within institutions and conducting experimental plant breeding projects to adapt nutrient-dense cultivars to our changing climate as a guest in Treaty 8 Territory.

Tiffany has served as a volunteer Advisory Council member with the Community Seed Network, and represents the Mountain Forests Biome on Indigenous Climate Action’s Decolonizing Climate Policy Advisory Council, as well as serving on the Equity and Inclusion Advisory Committee for Farmers for Climate Solutions. Her hope is to continue being a ‘Weaver’, advocating to create better access to resources and increase our collective seed and food security and sovereignty.

Tiffany has been serving on SeedChange’s Board since October 2020, before becoming the Chair.
