~We are asking for strong and pure seed. This means no GMO. We are hoping for Heirloom & Organic. By this we mean varieties that are adapted to our climate and have been stable for many generations. How many generations is up for grabs. Sharing seed with your community is an excellent oportunity to share quality seed stock.

Why is seed swapping important?
It maintains age-old skills
It keeps a diversity of locally adapted varieties alive
It resists the privatization of plant genetic material
It keeps seed making in the garden and out of the laboratory
It gets round the counter-productive aspects of the National List, which even the government admits are daft
It helps protect biodiversity
Not to mention introducing you to other local gardeners, cementing a sense of community and saving you money. Not bad for something you can do in your back garden!
