This is a leaderless group by choice. People interested in seed saving may participate in any activity they choose. All scheduled meeting are potluck and take place at various gardens or farms on the island. Anyone with fresh dried seeds may contribute seed or take seeds from our collection. Donated seeds should be packed in paper, no plastic, and labeled by variety, date gathered and place: i.e. eggfruit-Gorsich Farm, 4/14/2014.

Giveaways of seeds will occur at the library when there are book sales. Giveaways also occur on special occasions such as Earth Day in coordination with other groups, or Mom’s dinners etc.  If you would like us to come visit you garden or farm, call Joe Kennedy 336-1566 to volunteer.
