Keeping Heirloom Seeds In Our Gardens & On Our Tables
Thank you to all who joined us for the seed exchanges! We look forward to more opportunities to share seeds and plants.
PSA: Saving and sharing seeds can help you become more self-sufficient and independent, can help you build meaningful relationships with your friends and neighbors, and will empower you to participate in building a stronger and more secure food system, by growing heritage seeds, land races and endangered plants.
We encourage all local gardeners to participate by requesting seeds from others and offering seeds they’ve saved from their own gardens. We want to teach and advise with proper seed saving for germination and success, as well as an understanding of what plants can be best saved and shared or replanted successfully by beginners.
Call your local Grange to participate by sharing seeds, with table space to display.
Our mission is to conserve and promote America’s endangered and culturally diverse garden and food crops for future generations, and to share heritage, open pollinated heirloom seeds and plants with all.
Co-sponsored by your local Grange and the Mendocino County Pomona Grange
