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.

The Seed Savers Garden Forum is a series of informal discussions around seed saving, including such topics as garden preparation and selection methods. Join us for our first forum on Sunday, April 3rd from 1 to 3pm, in the Cottonwood Community Garden in Strathcona. VV event page!

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.
