Local Action & Resource – Spring Seed Swaps/Website/Newsletter
Posted in Events by Ferne Edwards on August 31st, 2007
Get your seeds ready and jump into a seed swap this spring! EVERY SATURDAY IN SEPTEMBER at the CERES MARKET, between 11-1pm!
Seed swapping is an important means of exchange which maintains our plant diversity protecting sustainability while fostering community. The Seed Savers group based at CERES, East Brunswick, welcomes people to swap their seeds for free on a regular basis throughout September. Make sure you have labelled seed appropriately with variety, scientific name (if possible), date of collection, and your name.
The Seed Savers group also have a new website; http://seedsavers.humanpowered.com.au.
There is also a mobile seed bank: The propagation boys at CERES have started a mobile seed bank. So if you have properly labelled seed (seed passport) you can exchange it or take seed as a serious grower to grow out varieties and return the seed for preservation.
And a Newsletter! Visit the website listed above for more information.
