Do you garden? Are you a seed saver? If not, would you like to be?
The Community Seed Exchange relies on you, the community gardeners, to keep successful
varieties going in our gardens. Currently, because the library is closed the donation of seeds
is on hold.
The way it works is simple; you borrow some seeds grown by someone else in the
community, you grow the plant in your garden, harvest the seeds, keep some for yourself, and
return some of those seeds to the exchange with the necessary information on growing conditions
so that others may grow them. Membership and borrowing seeds is free. Volunteering will be
encouraged as the tasks increase. There will be materials to help you in your saving * methods,
times, storage tips * and lists of resources * books and online sources.
As the project progresses your input is welcome so that it can be improved.
THE SAFE SEED PLEDGE - complete
High Mowing Organic Seed is a good resource for
information. They are in Vermont so not a good source for
local growers and I wouldn't recommend commercial seed
companies is any case. But their information is free.
This planting guide is recommended for use in this area.
