WANTED: To find folks in need of food seed
I am looking for some people to whom I can give vegetable seeds. I want folks who may be struggling due to the economy, loss, or other issue that may prevent them from getting the food seeds they need this year.
I am starting a new project (very early stages right now), that will provide seeds to people in need. Someone was chided or banned here recently for requesting seed without having something to offer in return. I do not ask for something in return here, but I am offering.
I still have a couple of personal trades to get out this week, and then I will be out of state next weekend (Easter). Please post & e-mail me directly at Robin282mt@verizon.net (I will have access to a computer).
If you are not in need of seed, please think of those around you. Do you have a single-mom neighbor who gardens? Maybe your sibling knows someone who is struggling.
PLEASE, I do not wish to run a free-for-all. This is for folks who cannot afford to buy their seeds, or who have had a loss of some sort. Also, I do not mind groups who are doing something similar (say, in Appalachia for example).
I am offering a variety of garden vegetable seeds, some fruit seed, herbs, and a few flowers for cheer.
If anyone would like to contribute to this effort, I am open to that, but it is not necessary to do that--even if you petition for someone. I am mainly looking for food seeds. We all have extras that we would like to see someone use.
For now, the care package will contain squashes, lettuce, tomatoes, peas, beans, and a few others. If you decide to send a contribution, please send information covering what would be on a seed packet. Although GW members rarely do this because most GW folks are fairly well-versed in such info, the people we give to may not.
This is not an attempt by me to get seed from anyone. No one has to send a thing, and I still will want to send seeds out. I have pounds of sunflower & popcorn & bean seeds, and I know times are getting tough. Having been at the bottom financially at one time myself, I wish to help those who are there now.
I would also be willing to send things "in trade" of seeds I have a lot of to people who donate.
Thanks, and lets help some people!
