If I've missed this (or a similar) topic already, or if this is something already established within the community, pardon the repetition.
I would like to establish a seed network with interested individuals who seasonally collect, store, and regrow food, medicinal, and other crops, herbs, or trees. Rooted cuttings would also be of interest (though more difficult to transport and exchange between distant locations). The general idea would be:
- Establish a list of regular seeds you plan to grow
- Post the list to the network thread or site (I can set something up)
- When a batch of seeds becomes available, post for excange for something that someone else is growing that you would like
- Arrange mailing and exchange with any interested parties
- Repeat as the season calls for it
Would anyone be interested in working with me to set up something like that? We can have wish lists, planned seed or cutting lists, and then a list of 'it worked, and I'm ready to ship this out' items. No monetary exchange would be expected or facilitated, and the terms of exchanges (how many seeds, of what) would be in the hands of anyone making a trade. No guarantees could be expected, but we can share our successes of different seeds on the site.
