Building resilient rural areas or communities is one of the major goals of any strategy supporting food security for the future. Under these circumstances the major stakeholders are the people working in agriculture such as producers. In Romania, Sibiu county they can be landowners, custodians or non formal land-loaning people dedicated for practicing agriculture. The scope of this article was to survey the awareness level regarding the value of genetic resources for food and agriculture of producers that are selling their agri-food products in Sibiu city. Based on the analysis of our results most of producers are of orthodox religion and are coupling the religious fests 'calendar to agricultural practices calendar. If they are aware about the value of old animal bred, they are not aware about the value of preserving landraces for more than 100 years in the same agro-ecosystem. About 15 crops species are among the best traded on the Sibiu market, but their genetic pools is much wider reaching up to 40 species in traditional gardening. The landowners are not ye associated at the commune level and therefore it is a great need to be supported at the local and county level by officials. A recognition of the history of importing genetic resources for the region is a must due to current failures in importing crops not suitable for very peculiar local conditions. Also, we recommend the adoption of the list of crops varieties traditionally cultivated in villages. The willingness of producers to be recognized for a potential network for on farm conservation should also be part of a process to be adopted an official list for on farm conservation of genetic resources in a bottom-up approach up to the national and European levels.
