Save your own Seeds!
In my community of Greater Victoria our Public Library sponsors a Seed Savers Program. This is a dedicated group of people who volunteer to keep a library of seeds, offer educational programs for seed saving and have equipment to lend out to support a growing trend of sharing and saving seeds. If you live in the #yyj area, check it out! If you don’t live in our area check for unique programs (or start one) in your own community. It is a great way to build a like-minded network . Here is a link to B.C.’s Seed Saving communities.
