National Seed Swap Day

January 29th, 2011

Today, just a few short days after the governmental, judicial, and corporate leaders of our nation made a decision that will threaten the world’s seed supply for generations to come, is National Seed Swap Day. I will be running a swap at NOFA-New Jersey’s Regenerative and Resilient Food Systems: Sowing New Seeds Winter Conference. The next day of the conference I’ll be giving a talk on seed saving. Hope you can make it, there are many wonderful speakers at this year’s conference. If you can’t come, here are some resources to help you think about seeds today.

Sow local, seeds are survivors!
