Peter and I went to the Seed savers garden forum yesterday and Ross presented an idea to have a seed library, where people could check out seeds to give them a try. In return they would be asked to grow out the seed and return new viable seed to the library.  Nifty idea.  Still wrapping my head around how this might work.

Hi everyone,

At Dan Jason's talk last night (Friday), Emily brought up the CETA agreement which could mean the end of farmer's rights to save seed. Here's some more information:

Hi everyone,

The Cedar Cottage Seed Saving Collective had a very successful first meeting, and if anyone is interested in a run-down of the meeting, please let me know. It's pretty long so I don't want to post it in full here, but I can send it as a message to anyone who wants to take a look.

 

Cheers

 

Robin

Hi Cylia, I'd love to carpool with you if you still have a seat available!

Discussion Forum

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

70 discussions

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
