you guys, the behind the scenes stuff with the golden seed savers, the community garden, my own garden. the work!
i've scheduled the spring seed swap in time for indoor seed starting. it's at the library, a great space for a seed swap. this is a lot of designing info and literature, pamphlets, signage and the swap poster (below).
if you are local and have never grown a plant from seed, now is the time.
we are so disconnected with the importance of the soil, of knowing our seeds, of truly knowing our food.
i've also created a helpful little tab on my website for the golden seed savers, with a lot of resources to get you started, as well as some soil info.
in addition to these things, i've started a go fund me for the golden seed savers. i'm now faced with the problem of maintaining proper seed storage for seed viability, as well as labeling, weighing, sorting and storing all the seeds. i'm trying to find a good local location for a seed bank to be, with a sign out system, as i've already catalogued all the seeds I currently have. a feat in itself! until i have some community support, however, i cannot do these things, including funding a proper seed savers website (i already bought the domain).
these winter months are truly meant for garden dreamers. the beautiful seed catalogues, circling and drawing hearts in the margin like a school girl. i want to grow all the things!
the flier that i'll put at the library and through the community garden will not have my website address on it, since i'm quite a private person, with a green St. Pat's theme.
i hope to see you there!
