South Sound Seed Stewards Mission Statement
“Knowing that in our present geopolitical state, many seed companies, which have provided the non-hybrid and open-pollinated varieties, are no longer in business and/or are producing hybrid varieties mainly for the commercial growers, South Sound Seed Stewards has organized for the purpose of:
* Encouraging community independence and self-reliance through producing and sharing locally-adapted, open-pollinated seeds.
* Providing for the home gardener an educational resource in sustainable gardening.
* Protecting and collecting the seed from our non-hybrid, open- pollinated varieties
* Creating a Seed Bank of non-hybrid, open-pollinated seeds which have been acclimated to our region.
Safe Seed Pledge
We shall never knowingly buy, sell or distribute genetically engineered seeds or plants.

South Sound Seed Stewards packed the house on Jan. 12, with many (over 60?) new people registered.
I am one of the newly registered folks looking to learn how to correctly grow, harvest and preserve my own seed from open-pollinated plants (vegies). Have gardened for years and learnt a lot in just one evening.
For anyone who was wondering if it would be worthwhile…YES, it surely is and was fun to boot!
February meeting is in new place with bigger room!
