For the 2011 growing season we are growing many open-pollinated varieties at the Grange garden, and curating a small collection of seeds which can be taken and grown at your home or farm. Click here for the list of our current collection.
Here's how it works:
- Become a Grange member if you are not already, and pay $5 dues to join the seed co-op
- Look at our inventory and pick out what seeds you want to grow for eating and/or seed saving
- Contact our curator to access the seed cabinet at the Grange hall (contact info below)
- Grow the crops, harvest and process the seeds and return them for future generations
What you get:
- Access to all the seeds you need for your home garden, within reason.
- Access to all seed talks and seed classes at the Grange, forthcoming on an as needed basis (in spring for crop planning, in fall for seed harvesting/processing)
- Grange dues - $28/yr
- Seed co-op dues - $5/yr
- Adopt 2 varieties that you will save seed from, and return twice (or more!) as much seed as you take. Write down your adopted varieties in our seed co-op logbook.
Special thanks for Shanye Murphy for his vision, guidance, and donations of time and seed.
To get involved, or to get seeds from the co-op to grow, please contact Seed Co-op Curator Andrew Whitman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
