The 2Seeds Network started with humble beginnings—just a conversation—when a small group of young Americans visited a Tanzanian village. They got to know the community (composed mostly of small-holder farmers), observed the breakdown in agricultural production and distribution, and a conversation on why the breakdown existed began. What resulted was an invitation from the community to stay, try some new concepts, and work together to improve their yield and profit. Their initial conversation led to much more dialogue, and three months later, their efforts were met with big reward—their Tanzanian partners' income tripled in the first harvest and the village did not have to face its usual hunger season. What 2Seeds learned in that first project, and what it continues to experience throughout the eight projects since, is how to become agents of innovation in the poorest villages in Tanzania.
