News About Seeds

I have two new bits of info to share with you:

Farmers who produce crops for seeds
High Mowing Seeds, one of our suppliers who donates seeds, has information about farmers who grow crops for seeds. Growing crops just for seeds involves a different strategy than growing crops for food. Check out the article at:

Svalbard Seed Vault Leaks

If you came to one of the two talks about seed starting I gave this month, you may remember I talked about the seed vault located in one of the coldest places on earth inside a mountain. You would think it would be mostly immune to global warming, but it was not!  Some of the permafrost melted which resulted in a small leak. Check out the article about this and see some amazing photos of the 'Doomsday Vault'.

Thank you to all seed donors and Volunteers!
I just want to thank everyone who has donated seeds and money or volunteered their time packaging seeds. Without your help there would not be a seed library.
